why math bridge
Why Math-Bridge?
  • Numbers of graduated engineers insufficient
    • Germany 1996: 52.278
    • 2002: 31.000
why math bridge1
Why Math-Bridge?
  • 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

why math bridge2
Why Math-Bridge?
  • Existing remedial courses for higher education insufficient:
    • Do not adapt enough to individual students
    • Do not adapt enough to field-of-study
    • Do not illustrate early enough importance of mathematics in field-of-study
why math bridge3
Why Math-Bridge?
  • Existing digital content not properly reusable
    • single languages instead of multi-lingual
    • not interoperable
    • not standard compliant (or no metadata)
    • not for all colleges and universities
  • Existing digital content not well accessible
    • No semantic search
    • No cultural-adaptiv search
    • Existing digital content with little interactivity
    • Existing digital content without cultural adaptation

main goals of the project
Main Goals of the Project
  • Bridge the Mathematics gap between schools and higher education in Europe
  • Enhance several large European content sources to

interoperable format, use them in Math-Bridge service

  • Improved use and reuse through ActiveMath
  • Multi-lingual and multi-cultural access
    • English, German, Finnish, French, Dutch, Hungaria, Spanish
  • CustomizeActiveMath platform for personalized remedial service
