German Undergraduate Mathematics Enrolment Numbers: Background and Change
Ammann, Claudia; Frauendiener, Jorg; Holton, Derek
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v41 n4 p435-449 2010
Before we consider the German tertiary system, we review the education system and consider other relevant background details. We then concentrate on the tertiary system and observe that the mathematical enrolments are keeping up with the overall student enrolments. At the same time, the first year mathematics enrolments for women are greater than that for men, although more men are still studying mathematics at university. Finally, we note that the German economy seems to play a role in mathematics enrolments though not necessarily to its comparative detriment. (Contains 7 notes and 8 figures.)
