Summary: The growing importance of mathematical skills and ICTs to the workplace and industry is placing greater demand on teachers, schools and designers of curricula to find approaches to teaching and learning that facilitate the transfer of school-based mathematical knowledge to the world outside of school. This chapter explores the potential of a synergy between research in the areas of mathematical applications and modelling, numeracy, and ICTs in mathematics education, to offer the means of designing school based activities that provide a bridge between school mathematics and the worlds beyond school.
