At the beginning of October, many young adults begin a new phase in their lives with the start of their studies. To ease the transition from school mathematics to the teaching content at a university, the Institute of Mathematics at Paderborn University is offering preliminary courses from 4 to 29 September. The courses take place in presence at the university. In addition, the Institute provides extensive online material so that participants can also brush up on the content through self-study. Further information and registration options are available on the website of the mathematics pre-courses.

The preliminary course in mathematics is aimed at all first-year students who are planning to study mathematics, chemistry, computer science, business informatics, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, industrial engineering, computer engineering, technomathematics or teaching mathematics as a subject at grammar schools and comprehensive schools or vocational colleges. Accordingly, the preliminary courses serve on the one hand to refresh and deepen the mathematics knowledge of secondary school I and II and on the other hand to prepare students for the working methods and contents of university mathematics.

The content covered in the preliminary courses is relevant for all future mathematics courses and is a prerequisite for the degree programme. The institute works with materials that have been tried and tested over many years and are constantly being developed further, which were created in close cooperation between mathematicians and mathematics didacticians in the VEMINT and studiVEMINT projects. At the same time, the participants have the opportunity to get to know the university and their new fellow students.
