Counselling Implications on the Role of the New Mathematics Teacher in the Teaching and Learning of Mathematics

  • N Osarenren

Abstract



The many reforms that the mathematics curriculum in Ghana has undergone since independence in 1957 have not yielded the needed results. The teacher is the centre of any teaching and learning process, therefore much attention must be given to the classroom teacher. There is the need for mathematics revolution in Ghana. This paper discusses how this can be achieved by adopting and modifying the Realistic Mathematics Education (RME). The authors also advocate the efficacy of counseling especially the use of cognitive restructuring strategy in the realization of the goals of RME.

Keywords: Realistic Mathematics Education; Cognitive restructuring; Counselling.
