Abstract

In this paper the supportive actions taken at Tampere University of Technology (TUT) for the first year students in engineering mathematics are discussed. The measures include Basic Skill’s Test (BST), Mathematics Remedial Instruction (MRI), and student profiling based on students’ attitudes on learning. Specially, we describe how MRI was implemented in Math-Bridge and carried out at TUT. The effects of MRI for different learner groups using success indicators, log file analysis, and statistical methods are presented and clarified using data visualization.
