In STEM degree programs, high dropout rates are observed and mainly attributed to missing mathematical preparation. However, in contrast to the normatively specified educational goals of secondary education systems, the prerequisites from the perspective of tertiary education are far less clear – especially in countries without entrance examinations like Germany. The aim of our study with 36 university teachers is to explore which mathematical prerequisites are considered necessary for STEM degree courses in Germany. Moreover, we analyze whether university teachers differ with respect to their specified prerequisites.
