The University of Groningen is now supporting six schools in the north of the Netherlands with their 'Wiskunde D' lessons. Secondary schools can offer four different types of mathematics. Pupils who have done 'Mathematics D' show better results when they take a Science bachelor at university.
However, not many pupils choose the Math-D course, and many schools simply haven't the manpower to offer this course to just a handful of students. That's why the University of Groningen stepped in, by facilitating a joint program. Schoolteachers record video lessons for all pupils and a master student at the RUG helps out by answering questions from pupils. All participants use the University's digital education platform Nestor.
The program is an experiment. Next Spring, the University and the schools will evaluate it and decide whether to continue or not.
Yesterday, a team of RUG students won the European Rover Challenge in Poland, a three-day competition in which student teams from all over the world compete.
