Mathematics teaching/learning in basic and senior secondary schools

  • Primrose O Cofie Department of Mathematics Education, UCEW


In spite of much improvement in the academic staff of training colleges in the area of Mathematics Education as well as yearly organisation of maths and science clinics, little evidence is found in the improvement of performance of pupils/students in our schools. Improvement is measured by the performance of students at the BECE, and SSCE the results, of which seem to be very low over the years. Studies done, however, suggest that the improvement in mathematical attainment of pupils/student does not only depend on good staffing in our schools. There is therefore the need to explore factors that will help to improve upon the performance of pupils/students.
