About Carl Winsløw

I am working on the didactics of mathematics, mainly concerning the tertiary level. Here are some of my current areas of particular interest:

  • theories of didactics of mathematics and science
  • formation and induction of teachers of mathematics (particularly international comparison)
  • didactical designs aiming to further advanced student work in mathematics

My scientific works include also items on

  • didactics of mathematical analysis (and more generally, university math ed) 
  • mathematics teacher knowledge
  • epistemological components of preparing mathematics for teaching
  • subfactors of von Neumann algebras

You can see all my research publications here.
