The Royal Society's Mathematical Futures programme which aims to build a new vision of mathematics education that anticipates and supports the role of mathematics for individuals, economies and society, strengthening diversity and reducing inequity.

Layman's description

The programme will explore the mathematical skills that will be needed by all citizens to thrive in the future and how education systems should develop those skills. It will consider competencies such as data, statistics, computing and data science that will ensure young people are not only equipped to meet the needs of a technological economy, but are also empowered, well-rounded citizens. It will address the challenges of achieving an improved gender balance in maths and explore why the majority of girls do not continue with maths post-16.
