The emphasis on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education in recent times could be perceived as business as usual or as an opportunity for innovation and change in mathematics classrooms. Either option presents challenges for mathematics educators who are expected to contribute to the foundations of a STEM literate community. A greater understanding of the implications of a STEM education for mathematics education is needed. This paper seeks to add to conversations about the implications of STEM education for the learning and teaching of mathematics.
