The “Goldener Zirkel” is the Teaching Award given by the Mathematics Departmental Student Council.

At each graduation ceremony of the Department of Mathematics, the “Goldener Zirkel” is awarded for the previous semester in the categories “Best Introductory Course,” “Best Advanced Course,” and “Best Exercise Coordination.” The winners are selected based on the results of the lecture surveys. Since the winter semester 2014/15, the achievements in the practical modules are also taken into account as part of the “Best Introductory Course” category and the teaching assistents get awarded as well.

On this page you can find the winners of previous years.
