Abstract

This article proposes a discussion of the goals, effectiveness, and shortcomings of Mathematics curricula and assessment systems in higher education. Selected writings by mathematicians, mathematics educationalists and higher education theorists on the broad themes of curriculum and assessment are cited as points of reference. The relationship (or disaffection) between the academic communities of practitioners and theorists in these areas is briefly considered.
