Formatted Abstract/Summary
The proportion of students studying advanced mathematics in Years 11 and 12 in Australian schools has been declining since the mid-1990s. As such, universities are accepting students into mathematics–based degrees with weaker mathematical backgrounds than previous generations. How do students perform in university mathematics subjects if they have only studied intermediate mathematics at school? How do universities cater for these students? This paper investigates student performance in university mathematics subjects at The University of Queensland, based on whether students studied intermediate mathematics only or both intermediate and advanced mathematics at school.
