It is assumed that programs have an explicit description of aims and assessment methods (procedures by which the competences will be measured). Scope of this talk: teaching Mathematics (mainly catch-up mathematics) in science and engineering schools, for students beginning a university degree (or at the end of Secondary school). Challenges (2) Slide7:  Is the old way the best way? My Turn: Forget the Fads—The Old Way Works Best What will fix public education? A teacher, a chalkboard and a roomful of willing students By Evan Keliher NEWSWEEK [2002] The plain truth is we need to return to the method that’s most effective: a teacher in front of a chalkboard and a roomful of willing students. The old way is the best way. We have it from no less a figure than Euclid himself. When Ptolemy I, the king of Egypt, said he wanted to learn geometry, Euclid explained that he would have to study long hours and memorize the contents of a fat math book. The pharaoh complained that that would be unseemly and demanded a shortcut. Euclid replied, 'There is no royal road to geometry.' Slide8:  To improve support to the students 1.
