Øresundsdagen 4

A Pandora’s Box
How Will AI Affect the Future of Fundamental Mathematics in Higher Education?

The event takes place at the Technical University of Denmark in Copenhagen.
The conference is organized in collaboration between the Mathematics NF at Lund University and DTU Compute.

The purpose of Øresundsdagen is to provide mathematicians, mathematics education researchers, teachers and other stakeholders involved in university mathematics education with a forum to exchange experiences and insights and discuss current challenges. We encourage all interested participants to contribute with short presentations (20 minutes) to share their best practices.

This time, we specifically want to explore the following question:

How should, and should not (!), AI shape the future of introductory mathematics at the university level?

In the past year, the improvement of AI-based technology has been staggering. Just as with graphic calculators in the 1980s and 1990s, and CAS in 2000s and 2010s, AI-based tools are becoming part of the toolbox of every students. Already, such tools reliably solve most problems we give students in their first-year of undergraduate mathematics studies. Like it or not, this is changing how students engage with mathematics.
