Adults with widely varying mathematical backgrounds return to study at Sukhothai Thammathirat Open University. A large proportion of these students, whose study programs include a compulsory mathematics course, lack knowledge of mathematical fundamentals and find it difficult to complete the program successfully. This research, based on questionnaires completed by students attending face-to-face tutorials, looks into the difficulties students face and suggests steps that the university should take to assist them to lay a foundation on which to build successful study.
