The mission of the University of Cambridge is to contribute to society through the pursuit of education, learning, and research at the highest international levels of excellence.
Cambridge Mathematics is a collaborative enterprise in pursuit of this mission. The four University partners are committed to championing and securing a world class mathematics education for all students from 5 –19 years old, applicable to both national and international contexts and based on evidence from research and practice. We will call on our institutional courage and use the leadership, authority and expertise of the University to develop a coherent, transparent, evidence-based vision for Cambridge Mathematics – a vision that will make a major contribution to mathematics education internationally.
We believe that the study of mathematics is worthwhile for its own sake and as a key form of intellectual development. It is critical for the understanding of many other subjects and essential for functioning within modern society. Our vision is that the model of mathematics education that we intend to devise will emphasise the richness and power of maths, will encourage continued study of the subject and will be recognised world-wide as innovative and rigorous in approach. It will take into account the different needs in a changing world and contribute to learners’ personal, societal and economic well being. The enactment of the vision will draw on the expertise that resides in the University, and on that of our colleagues across the world.
