This article was originally written as a paper to accompany the opening plenary session at the MEI conference on July 3rd 2008. It looks at three particular areas of current concern for mathematics education in England.
- The proposed timing of changes to A Level;
- Mathematics in the level 3 diplomas; and
- The design of the proposed scheme for two GCSEs;
It is possible that by the time it is published in MSOR Connections events may have moved on removing at least some of the worries expressed in it. Let us hope so.
