Linking key Stage 3 maths to business and industry, and the United Nations Global Goals.
13 Oct 2021


We have identified 10 sectors of business and industry that are maths-based. We’ve written a description for each to help convey to your pupils what each sector is, examples of jobs, and also where their maths curriculum links to the sector.

We know that maths can change the world, and that young people care about this, so we have included a second description which showcases some of the United Nations Sustainable Development Global Goals (SDGs).

Educators may find this resource useful in:

  • deciding which sector to choose for an encounter
  • preparing pupils for their M4G encounter
  • to inform lesson planning and add context to lessons.
  • To base a research task on for pupils.

We'd love to hear how you have used it; let us know on our Twitter account @maths4girlsUK
