The objective of this study was to investigate mathematics curriculum, changes in college scholastic ability test(CSAT), general mathematics related courses in the university in order to find ways to improve college general mathematics by changes of higher education environment. Here are the suggestions for the improvement of college general mathematics as follows: First, it is required to provide chances for students to have additional learning opportunities on the subjects changed and reduced due to the changes of curriculum. Second, the operation of basic mathematics program and the level based operation are required in order to prevent students’ failure in mathematics in response to changes in mathematics curriculum and CSAT. Third, the introduction of diverse learning and teaching methods including flipped learning based PBL classes, cooperative learning, and provision of level based materials as replacement of lecture based classes is required to improve students’ performance and interests in mathematics. Fourth, the opening of diverse courses in pure general mathematics is required to raise core competencies required by the future society and to increase the educational value of mathematics through a combination of real life, diverse fields, and mathematics. For this, diverse studies are required in the fields of mathematics curriculum in pure general mathematics, and teaching and learning, evaluation methods and so on. Lastly, for the realization of the aforementioned points, it is necessary to make efforts to solve problems related to college general mathematics through sharing information related to college general mathematics, forming associations related to college general mathematics for the development of general mathematics curriculum, studying on diverse teaching and learning methods, and having discussions on issues caused by changes in higher education environment.
