The specialist day consists of a training course and a state conference for mathematics speakers: inside (secondary level I and secondary level II) in the state of Bremen. Being able to handle terms and equations confidently is part of the knowledge from the 8th grade up to the Abitur. Later in the MINT, economics and some social science courses, deficits in algebra increase the risk of dropping out. In addition to the frequent reports of problems, comparative studies at lower secondary level over the past decade have shown a decline in mathematics performance. How can learners stay algebraically active if they want to develop avoidance strategies because of their existing gaps?
The Mathematics Symposium is a cooperation between the Senator for Children and Education, the LIS and the Mathematics Department of the University of Bremen.
