Maths still crucial to engineers
My report, in fact, claims quite the reverse. It states unequivocally that "mathematics is and will remain crucial", and addresses questions facing engineers that arise from the ubiquitous role that technology now plays.
The central claim is that technology has changed the kind of maths used and how it might be taught at university, not how much maths is required.
