This paper seeks to investigate and thoroughly examine mathematics education for sustainable development using the ambit of scientific and technological literacy. The obvious importance of mathematics in facilitating scientific and technological development in the ‘developed’, ‘developing’ and ‘under-developed’ nations of the world are quite glaring. This paper therefore considered mathematics education in relation to the sustenance of scientific and technological development in Nigeria. Issues such as the political implications of mathematics education and the social implications of mathematics education were delved into. This paper also discussed the principles behind the actualization of scientific and technological literacy using mathematics education as a focal point. Hence, suggestions on how mathematics education could be improved by both the Federal government and other agencies were given. Recommendations on how attendant problems in mathematics education could be solved were proffered.
