Learning Strategies in Engineering Mathematics: Conceptualisation, Development, and Evaluation of MP²-MathePlus (Studien zur Hochschuldidaktik und zum … in der Mathematik und in der Statistik) by Birgit Griese

Birgit Griese presents MP2-Math/Plus, a support project for first-year students in engineering at Ruhr-Universität Bochum that aims at preventing unnecessary drop-out. Conceptualisation and development of the project follow a design research approach according to Gravemeijer, Cobb, and van den Akker. The interventions focus on learning strategies which are collected in a pre-post design with the aid of the LIST questionnaire by Wild and Schiefele. These and other data are utilised for the evaluation of MP2-Math/Plus. The results confirm the adaptations of the project procedures in successive cycles, stress the importance of effort and motivation, and assess the success of the project.
