Educational institutions face increasing pressures to respond to the changing environment, including the rapid advances in technology. All curricula are subject to scrutiny, but arguably the sciences and mathematics curricula are under a special lens, given the impact of changing technology and the increasing importance accorded to the knowledge economy. This paper explores the continuing dialogue regarding the teaching and learning of mathematics including the transition from secondary to post-secondary and the emergent trends in the field of mathematics education. The recent evolution of mathematics teaching is described and the implications for the future of mathematics teaching are highlighted, including the need for an examination of the learning experiences afforded secondary and post-secondary mathematics students, as well as the need for dialogue between the secondary and post-secondary levels of mathematics education with the purpose of evidence-based development for mathematics teaching.
