Eva Knoll is an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Education. Eva Knoll's current academic work consists of research into the mathematical elements of craft, design and visual art practices, with an emphasis on the potential application in mathematics education.
In particular, she is currently leading a research group composed of a mathematician, a textile scholar, two schoolteachers, an archivist and herself. Their work is focusing on an exploration of the mathematical thinking inherent in the design, creation and appreciation of textiles. Topics include:
Geometry: symmetries and transformations, groups in geometry, topology
Number sense and patterns in numbers
Diagrams and their effective creation and use for communication both in mathematics and art making
Other Research and Teaching Interests
Mathematical Research Situations in the Classroom (RSC)
Research experience in pure mathematics as a learning context
