A World-class Mathematics Education for All our Young People

Rate this resource

This report was the result of a request to Carol Vorderman from David Cameron and Michael Gove for advice on mathematics education at the time the Conservative Party was in opposition. A small voluntary task force was formed and worked with organisations and individuals (including students and parents) in the course of the completion of the report.

The report covers the mathematics in schools and colleges for students from age 5 to age 18 in England. It assesses:

• where mathematics education currently stands in England (as of 2011)
• where it needs to be in order for us to compete internationally on an economic basis, and
• what is needed on an individual basis for students to be mathematically literate, and so able to fulfil their potential in future life.
