B.Sc. (Ed) Mathematics Education
Mathematics Education was set up to train teachers who will demonstrate adequate knowledge of Mathematics with teaching competence. This is done in order to meet up with the ever increasing demand of Mathematics teachers with modern pedagogy to meet up with the challenge of instruction in the ICT age. The B.Sc. (ed.) Mathematics programme is structured to run for a minimum of four years and maximum of eight years for students starting at 100 level or minimum of three years and maximum of six years for students starting at 200 levels. Students will undergo a six week (6) practical teaching period at 300 and 400 levels.
The Philosophy of Mathematics Education Programme is to equip the teachers, regardless of time and place in an open and distance learning environment with skills of teaching the young learners to appreciate the relevance of Mathematics and to teach confidently with effective and creative methods that will make the learners have holistic development to suitably adapt to his world by applying Mathematics knowledge in resolving life challenges where appropriate.
To provide highly accessible, flexible and enhanced quality education leading to the award of a bachelor’s degree anchored by social justice, equity, equality and national cohesion through a comprehensive reach (ODL) that transcends all barriers.
To provide opportunities for the development of mathematical competences and creative minds that would equip learners with lifelong values and also produce professional teachers and leaders through Open and Distance Learning.
