Book Description

Mathematics Education for Sustainable Economic Growth and Job Creation considers the need for young employees to be capable and confident with transferable knowledge and skills in mathematics and statistics in order to support economic growth in developing countries in an increasingly digital age.

This book draws on differing international perspectives in relation to mathematics education for sustainable economic growth and job creation. The contributors include education researchers and those involved in policymaking for both developing countries and beyond. Within each chapter there is a reflection from the authors on their experiences in educational systems and policy development or research studies which contribute to sustainable economic growth in different countries. As well as considerations of economies and job creation, the scholarship delves further into developing a critically aware citizenship through mathematics education.

Extending current thinking about the role of mathematics education and educating students for future needs, this book will be of great interest for academics, researchers, and postgraduate students in the field of mathematics education, STEM education and sustainability education.
