A call for papers is now open for a special issue of the International Journal of Innovation in Science and Mathematics Education (IJ-ISME) will focus on the link between tertiary science education and employability.
Further details are available here.
In the last 12 months many have voiced their concerns about the mathematical background of students entering university science, technology, engineering and mathematics degrees. This special issue of the International Journal of Innovation in Science and Mathematics Education (IJISME) focuses on the impact of assumed knowledge entry requirements and demonstrates the impact from various disciplines’ perspectives.
This issue builds on and extends the presentations at the National Forum on Assumed knowledge in maths: its broad impact on tertiary STEM programs, held at The University of Sydney, in February 2014.
There will be a new journal appearing early in 2015 – the International Journal of Research in Undergraduate Mathematics is the result of collaboration between leading international researchers in university mathematics.
Currently research into teaching undergraduate mathematics can be difficult to locate. Find out more about the development of this new journal in the CULMS Newsletter (Community for Undergraduate Learning in the Mathematical Sciences based at the University of Auckland).
