Mathematics education has always been a key factor in improving a country’s productivity and competitiveness. Proficiency in mathematics education implies a high-level of cognitive skills among the labour force, in other words, a high quality of human capital, which leads to technological innovation and productivity gains. This paper discusses some examples of application areas where mathematics education is emerging as vital components with great opportunities for inter discipline research. It is recommended that the current interaction between mathematics education and other disciplines will be further strengthened by ensuring that adequate time is devoted to classes and to eliminate the belief that mathematics is not important in their lives
