Making Maths Count
Making Maths Count is an initiative which aims to encourage greater enthusiasm for and increase participation in maths.
As part of this work, Cabinet Secretary for Education and Lifelong Learning Angela Constance has brought together a group of experts spanning the fields of industry, academia and science, tasked with understanding the negative perceptions which exist around maths and making recommendations on how to address these.
Over the coming months the group will be engaging with the public online and at a series of focus groups, to inform the recommendations it will make to the Scottish Government in the summer.
This blog will keep you updated on the group’s work and showcase how people from across Scotland and elsewhere are making maths count in their lives and work.
Further details on the membership of the group and its meetings can be found at www.gov.scot/makingmathscount
