[Liste Smai] Survey by the EMS Education Committee


Je vous forwarde ce message du président de l'EMS au sujet des questions d'enseignement. Il me semble important de remplir le questionnaire proposé.

Très bonne journée.

Survey by the EMS Education Committee 


Dear Presidents,

Student transition from school-level mathematics to university-level mathematics, often referred to as the secondary-tertiary transition 
(STT) is an enduring, complicated and multi-faceted process. STT is a long-standing issue of concern, which has merited significant 
attention in mathematics education research and practice. At its 2018 meeting in Cyprus, the EMS Education Committee recognized 
that our knowledge about successful ways of dealing with STT is still insufficient and that moving forward requires a large-scope effort 
on the part of all parties involved, including mathematics lecturers, school teachers, education researchers, policymakers and students 
in transition. As part of this effort, the Committee is conducting a survey among mathematicians. The goal of the survey is to collect 

and report to the mathematics community information needed in order to devise national and international actions that can essentially 

improve the state of the art with respect to STT.


We would be thankful to you if you distributed the survey below among the members of your national mathematical society. The

completion of the survey takes about 15 minutes. The survey is open until September 15, 2019.



Additional thanks go to the members of your society for sending this invitation to further colleagues that might be interested in taking 

part in the survey and thus in contributing to the EMS collaborative effort to make substantial progress in relation to the STT. 


For more background information about STT, we refer to



With kind regards,

Volker Mehrmann,

President of the EMS
