### Math-BridgeEuropean Remedial Content for Mathematics

ECP 2008 EDU 428046

Deutsches Forschungsinstitut für Künstliche Intelligenz

Dr. Erica Melis

Coordinator

1.5.2009 – 31.1.2012

Why Math-Bridge?

- Numbers of graduated engineers insufficient
- Germany 1996: 52.278
- 2002: 31.000

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-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-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

Goal: Math-Bridge Service

vanDriesch

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

- slicing
- structure annotations
- metadata extension
- semantics of mathematical expressions

- Quality control and improvement
- …Transformation of external sources

Work: Use and reuse

- Commons server for content
- Use and reuse of content
- Gap detection, gap detectiontools
- Infrastructure for reporting gaps
- Guidelines for the publication of content
- Tool support for assembly of courses
- Application-relevant LOs

Michael Righi

Work:Improved accessibility

- Customization of ActiveMath’s search
- Collection of cultural differences and their use in search and for cultural rendering
- Search related to target competencies

Multi-lingual access

- Basis for language-dependent access
- Language adjustments of search/access
- Supported translation
- Tool for the language gap detection

Interactive exercises

- Interoperability of content/mathematical expressions
- Interoperability of tools for interactive exercises
- Further develop domain reasoners for diagnosis
- Cross-domain reasoning

Thomas Hawk

Personalized Remedial

- Remedial scenario/decision rules
- Estimation of students’ competencies
- Customization of personalized access
