Math-Bridge - European Remedial Content for Mathematics - June 2010

Helps to close the Mathematics gap between schools and higher education in Europe:

- Mathematics requirements in higher education often differ from what is learned in school.
- The Math-Bridge system can help to ensure a successful start of studies!
- The system provides access to content from top-notch European universities
- Adapts to individual pace of learning
- Learn what is needed when it is needed
- Content is available in many languages:
- Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Spanish

- Numbers of graduated engineers insufficient, e.g.
- Germany 1996: 52.278
- 2002: 31.000

Math-Bridge - European Remedial Content for Mathematics - June 2010

- Students lack mathematics competencies for (engineering) fields-of-study all over Europe
- Drop-out rates high in Europe! 15-60%
- No. of graduated engineers insufficient
- E.g., Germany 1996: 52.278
- 2002: 31.000

- A possible remedy: personalized online Bridge Courses

- Existing remedial courses for higher education are insufficient:
- They do not adapt enough to individual students
- They do not adapt enough to field-of-study
- They do not illustrate early enough the importance of mathematics in field-of-study

Math-Bridge - European Remedial Content for Mathematics - June 2010

- Existing digital European content is reused
- In multiple languages
- Interoperable and standard
- for all colleges and universities

- Existing digital content is made accessible
- Semantic search
- Culturally adaptive search

- Interactivity is taken to a new level
- Presentations are culturally adapted
