Abstract [en]

This paper presents views of university staff about what has become called the ‘transition problem’ when students start studying mathematics at university. The data are from a focus group interview with eight experienced university lecturers at a Swedish university department that offers mathematics courses for engineering students. We use the portrayal of the problem in the literature as an axis for the discussion.
