Weierstraß-Prize for excellent teaching 2005

Prof. Dr. Peter Bender receives the Weierstraß-Prize 2004 for his excellent lecturing during winter semester 2003/04 for his lectures “Elemente der Geometrie “, “Grundkurs Mathematik II” and “Arithmetik und Zahlentheorie und Elemente der Geometrie” during summer semester 2004.

The lectures accompanied by tutorials are aimed at students studying to be a teacher, with different qualifications and interests. With his lectures, Mr Bender managed to achieve the impossible: He was able to fittingly address all participants and encouraged all to an intensive collaboration.

In the framework of the student´s course reviews, the students highlighted the thoroughly preparation, the encouraging presentation, as well as the high quality of his lectures and the striking learning success.

Here are some direct quotes:

  • Mr Bender has deserved the prize, because he always conveys the subject matters with a sense of humour and makes them comprehensible
  • Mr Bender gives his best with charm and vigour
  • Overall, the lectures and tutorials in all areas are convincing. I am surprised, that mathematics is becoming more and more comprehensible to me. All in all, I can recommend his style.
  • I am excited about the lectures, there seem to be no stupid questions for Mr Bender; he offers good explanations.
  • Bender deserves the prize, as he is the only prof. where I understand everything!

During summer 2004 the students have emphatically campaigned for Mr Bender's to remain a lecturer and doesn't follow the call for a different university. We are happy that the faculty was able to convince him to stay.

Dr. Alexander May is an academic staff member in the research group of Professor Blömer at the Department of Computer Science. He receives the Weierstraß-Prize 2004 for his excellent achievements in mentoring tutorials and lectures. Those were “Kryptography I und II” during winter semester 2003/04 and “Datenstrukturen und Algorithmen” during summer semester 2004.

  • Alex May is a great tutor, without him I would fail.
  • Alex May deserves the prize! He is the best group instructor of all tutorials I have visited the past 9 months. Especially because, within 5 minutes he could explain to me what I couldn´t understand during the whole mathematics seminar. 
  • Blömer is really good, and Alex is better.
  • Alex should receive the prize.

The jury, deployed by the dean´s office, which is responsible for the awarding of the Weierstraß-Prize, consists of following members:

  • Prof. Dr. Helmut Lenzing
  • Jan Hendrik Hausmann
  • Tobias Otterpohl
  • Thomas Freitag
