Nowadays, modernization has covered almost all countries of the world. Big changes are taking place in all areas of life, and education is not an exception. Against the backdrop of ongoing political, social and financial changes, the content of gender roles in education is also undergoing modification. In this context, it is important to study the gender distribution when high school students choose the profession of a teacher, and, in particular, a teacher of mathematics. In fact, this profession is currently one of those that are most prone to gender segregation. As a result, the purpose of this article is to explore the relationship between gender and career choice as a mathematics teacher among young people in Azerbaijan, and to illustrate the results. The article pays special attention to one Azerbaijani university - Baku State University, and statistics are built on its basis. The study revealed important results that demonstrate the existence of a certain relationship between gender and the choice of a mathematics teacher as a profession, which may negatively affect future education.
