Mathematics teachers' knowledge of the subject content and methodology

SK Asiedu-Addo, I Yidana


This paper discusses the need of the mathematics teacher to be equipped adequately in the content areas in mathematics, vis-a-vis the recent concerns about the poor performance of students in the pre-tertiary schools, and the competence of mathematics teachers in the field. The low performance in mathematics at the pre-tertiary level of the education system could be attributed to the low content base of teachers of mathematics. This paper discusses ways of addressing this problem.
