The secondary-tertiary interface is critical to university mathematics. How well students gain skills, concepts, and learning strategies from secondary school and then transfer these to their new environment is instrumental to the success of mathematics. While mathematics is in a privileged position in the school curriculum university mathematicians are facing new challenges.
