About the Call for Views
As part of the Mathematical Futures programme, this call for views gathered a range of views, opinions, information and evidence on how mathematics is changing, and what the impact of such changes may be on the future of education, society, and work. The responses received will influence the programme’s activities and projects. They will also inform the Society’s efforts to ensure the UK’s education systems offer young people a broad and balanced curriculum covering the sciences, humanities, arts and social sciences up to age 18.
The Mathematical Futures Call for Views was structured around the programme’s two core questions
- What mathematical competences will be needed by citizens to thrive in the future?
- How should education systems develop these mathematical competences?
The Call for Views closed in January 2021 and received over 175 responses. Many thanks to all respondents for taking the time to provide their insights. The findings will be published in the autumn.
