A new online maths course from Spanish software company Math.org has been named one of the best available online courses in the country, according to a survey by the online mathematics degree provider Mathematica.
The company ranked the courses on the website for maths in spanias and mathematics degrees.
The study also revealed that students who had taken a maths course at a Spanish university had more than double the chance of getting a degree from the UK than those who had not.
The top 10 best-ranked courses included Math.com’s online courses, which scored 5.9 out of 10, followed by Mathematicas courses with 2.7, 3.4 and 2.1, respectively.
“Math.org courses are among the most popular online courses,” said Mathematicans head of digital technology at Mathematicabox, Francisco Sanchez.
“The breadth of topics offered by these courses makes them ideal for anyone who wants to develop an interest in mathematics.”
Students in Spain are eligible to take the course at public universities, private universities and the University of Madrid.
The new ranking follows a recent trend in the UK and Australia, which both ranked their best-performing courses in online courses.
The UK’s Mathematicamode, which is funded by the British government, has taken the top spot for its best-rated online courses since it was launched in August 2018.
In Australia, the Australian Council for the Universities (ACU) said its ranking of the top 10 highest-performing online courses was based on its research, data and analysis.
The ACU’s research includes analysing the data of thousands of online courses and the quality of the content of those courses.
In an editorial, ACU head of science and technology David Brown said: “We believe online education is the most effective and most accessible way to teach mathematics.”
The ACU is committed to investing in this important space by investing in the best teachers and leading the way in online learning.
“Our commitment is to support the teaching of mathematics by investing to ensure the quality and accessibility of Australian mathematics.”
The new UK ranking was based in part on the research and quality of teaching content, according the ACU.
However, a spokesperson for the ACG said the organisation’s research was “well supported by the evidence”.
