Support in mathematics

Based on our experience that deficits in mathematics often arise in everyday study life or that the previous knowledge of first-year students is not always sufficient to be able to follow the lecture, various forms of support in mathematics have been developed at TH Wildau. These offers start at different levels of mathematics teaching and support you in working through difficulties. Find out more about the various offers in mathematics below. If you need further information about our support for maths, e. g. material for self-study, please contact Ms Jeremias.


Support and materials in mathematics

E-Assessment for MathematicsOpen areaClose area

If you are thinking of enrolling in a degree programme as an international or exchange student at TH Wildau, we recommend that you check your previous knowledge in mathematics. According to our experience math skills are essential not only in STEM degrees (science, technology, engineering, mathematics), but also in business degrees.

Please find below our e-assessment for mathematics. All maths problems in this e-assessment refer to the curriculum of secondary schools – the degree programme contents are based on this knowledge.


Mathematics CounsellingOpen areaClose area

Mathematics counselling is an individual counselling service. It is available to students of TH Wildau and to those interested in studying in Wildau. The counselling is free of charge for these target groups.

The reason for such counselling can be various:

  • You went to school in another country and are unsure whether the math content matches the requirements at TH Wildau
  • You went to school a long time ago and assume that you need to brush up on your previous knowledge before you start studying. But how?
  • During your studies you realise that you are having difficulties keeping up in mathematics. Your own strategies do not seem to bring sufficient success.
  • You have failed a mathematics exam and wonder how you should prepare for the repeat exam.
  • ...

In mathematics counselling, a suitable approach is worked out, e.g. a sensible order of the topics to be studied, which takes into account which topics build on one another. If you have any questions, you can write a short email to Ms Jeremias. The appointments will be arranged individually.

Preparation for MathematicsOpen areaClose area

In case you need preparation for your maths modules, there are special books in the library you may use. You will find them here. It is not possible to take these books home but there is a possibility to scan the content in the library.

Calculators in StudiesOpen areaClose area

Here you will find guidance on which calculator you can use during your studies.

Important: Only the examiner decides whether a pocket calculator is generally permitted and, if so, which one! Information about the permitted aids can be found in the examination schedule (in German: "Prüfungsschema"), which must be announced at the beginning of the semester. Using an unauthorized calculator will be considered as a fraud attempt!

If a "simple" or "scientific" calculator is permitted, this excludes many school calculators if they are programmable or graphically capable or have more advanced mathematical functions (e.g. solving equations or deriving functions). You can borrow "simple" or "scientific" calculators from the library. Further information can be found here under "Ausleihe von Taschenrechnern" (in English: "Loan of calculators").

Use the following list to determine whether the calculator you own or are considering to purchase is considered as "simple" or "scientific" calculator:
