1998 - 2003
In 1998 the first interactive pages are created in the context of my mathematics lessons at the Staatliche Realschule Vohenstrauß. With my appointment as seminar teacher for mathematics and the change to the Hans-Scholl-Realschule in Weiden i.d.OPf. the scope expands. At the computer fair in the region, the school gets its own booth. Here, students from my classes present the interactive worksheets to the public for the first time. The response is overwhelming. With the appointment as second Realschulkonrektor, the change to the Sophie-Scholl-Realschule in Weiden i.d.OPf. takes place. Now begins a dynamic development ... realmath.de is launched.

In August 2006 I started a very fruitful cooperation of almost three years with Prof. Dr. Thomas Weth at the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg. He accompanied my doctorate as my thesis advisor. Many conversations and the work during this time significantly influenced the development of realmath.de. During this time, the didactic three-step approach was developed, which still characterizes realmath.de today. Illustrate - Practice - Understand. The dissertation was completed in April 2009.
