“Since Mathematics is Very Important, it Should be Taught in Nigerian Languages” — Professor

A Professor of Mathematics, Joseph Kayode, has advised that mathematics be taught in Nigerian Languages to aid understanding of the topic.

The Professor said this while delivering the 141st Inaugural lecture of the Federal University of Technology Akure (FUTA), on Tuesday 21st December 2021.

According to the University Don, considering the importance of mathematics to the study of any course and practice of any profession, it is expedient to put structures in place that will enable learners to easily assimilate mathematical concepts.

Prof Joseph also added that efforts must be made by handlers of mathematics from primary to tertiary levels of education to remove the induced phobia towards mathematics by making the subject friendly to learners. He added that teachers must bring the contents of the subject to the level of the learners by majorly using local materials, relating examples to the day-to-day life experiences of teachers and learners.

He also urged governments at Federal, state and local levels as well as private individuals to make concerted and focused efforts at improving funding of mathematical projects and research at all levels of mathematics education in Nigeria.
