ab: Summary: The transition from school to university is a challenge for all
students as the teaching-learning cultures and the types of mathematics
are very different and require from students large efforts of
adaptation. A deeper understanding and research into the features of
this transition is necessary for informing institutions and their
teachers to better support students in the transition phase. Vice
versa, a backwards transition from university to school is part of
every teachersâ€™ biography and includes particular challenges. On an
institutional level, the backwards transition is concerned with
updating school curricula by taking new developments of mathematics and
science at university level into account. The paper elaborates these
problems and provides an introduction into the set of papers that are
concerned with transitions and transformations on a personal and
institutional level.
