Transitions in undergraduate mathematics education

When studying mathematics during single or joint honours mathematics courses, undergraduate students experience a number of 'transitions points' or 'transitions periods'. These are times when many students experience difficulty applying or developing their mathematical knowledge, or adapting to changed learning methods and processes during their higher education studies. Written to meet the needs of university lecturers, teachers and tutors, this book forms a guide to understanding key issues, good practice and developments in learning and teaching in mathematics within higher education. Each Chapter is focused around an important transition point and written in a style that brings together published and evidence-based literature from across the higher education sector, analysing this in a scholarly manner to identify practical recommendations and 'tips' for both new and more experienced higher education practitioners alike.
