Mathematical Futures programme Call for Views

About the Call for Views

As part of the Mathematical Futures programme, this call for views aims to gather 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 we receive 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 is 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? 

Who this is for

This call for views is for anyone with an interest in the future of mathematics and its education, including:

- Primary and secondary schools, sixth form and FE colleges
- Higher Education Institutions
- School and college staff, including governors
- Other educational professionals including academics and researchers
- Parents and carers
- Young people
- Businesses
- Organisations providing activities for children and young people
- Other interested parties. 


To help us analyse the responses please use the online system wherever possible. If for exceptional reasons, you are unable to use the online system, for example because you use specialist accessibility software that is not compatible with the system, you may download a PDF version of the call for views document and respond either via email or post.
