Preparatory Online Course in Mathematics
We are pleased to provide you with our new preparatory online course in mathematics. It is expected that tutors will provide assistance in the forum in the near future. Please feel free to report any errors or remarks about the new course there. Due to a current staff shortage, we will not always be able to respond quickly. We are trying to improve the situation.
This preparatory online course serves those interested in studying a technical subject at university level as a preparation and for assessing their competence in mathematics. In addition to extensive instructional material, the course features diagnostic self-assessment tests as well as numerous instructional videos and interactive exercises. The course was developed within the scope of the VE&MINT project.
VE&MINT is a project cooperation of MINT-Kolleg Baden-Württemberg with VEMINT-Konsortium , Leibniz Universität Hannover and Technische Universität Berlin which seeks to offer a preparatory mathematical online course that is freely accessible nationwide based on a free licence, and more generally to promote exchange of instructional material as well as software between its sites.
For further information on the online course and the project, see www.ve-und-mint.de .
The English language/bilingual version of the course was developed at the TU Berlin with the specific goal to create a course accessible and useful for refugees.
