Christof Weber

School of Education of the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland
Kaput Center Visiting Scholar – Spring 2016

Dr. Christof Weber received his M.Sc. in 1990 (Mathematics, University of Basel), his M.Ed. in 1993 (Mathematics Education), and his Ph.D. in 2006 (Mathematics Education, University of Zürich). He currently serves as a Lecturer of Mathematics Education in the School of Teacher Education at the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland, and as Teacher of Mathematics at a Swiss Gymnasium (similar to preparatory high school).

The focus of his professional work is the relationship between mathematics and its teaching and learning. His research involves exploring visual imagining tasks and their use in the classroom. More recently, he investigates the elementary and secondary teachers’ diagnostic abilities reading school students’ documents, the specialized content knowledge for teaching logarithms as well as mathematical demands placed on students at the point of transition from school to university.

  • Interacting with faculty and students at the Kaput Center and Department of STEM Education and Teacher Development on his current projects
  • Presenting a colloquium session titled Exercises in Mathematical Imagining – From Practice to Theory To Practice on April 6, 2016
  • Leading a mathematical workshop titled From long-division to log-division–a math-lesson in thinking using analogies on April 22, 2016
  • Having various interactions with the doctoral students about the educational system in Switzerland to enhance their scopes about mathematics education at the international level
