The objective of this study is to examine changes in the Mathematics Curriculum and the College Scholastic Ability Test that affect the changes in the Basic Mathematical Ability of students enrolled in Science and Engineering departments and to compare and analyze the educational contents of basic general mathematics completed by first-year students in science and engineering fields in order to provide improvement plans for basic general mathematics. In Korea, whenever the mathematics curriculum is revised, the content covered in the previous curriculum is deleted or weakened in order to optimize the educational content, and ‘Calculus’ and ‘Geometry’ are required for science and engineering students to choose in the college scholastic ability test. Thus, the basic academic ability of mathematics is lowered, and it is difficult to complete the basic general mathematics taught in the first year of university. In order to solve this problem, it is necessary to analyze the mathematics and curriculum to include deleted or weakened contents in the university's basic general mathematics, to understand the students' basic academic ability in mathematics, and to operate basic general mathematics by level or operate basic mathematics courses. In addition, when revising the mathematics both in curriculum and the university scholastic ability test, the opinions of professors in charge of basic general mathematics education at universities should be sufficiently reflected to minimize changes in key factors for students to complete basic general mathematics, and it is necessary to provide policy support at the national level for the development and operation of the curriculum for general mathematics education at a college level.
