ABSTRACT This project studied the relevance of Mathematics as a core subject in senior secondary schools in Nsukka Local Government Area of Enugu State. The following research questions were posed to help the researchers in conducting this research: what are the benefits of teaching Mathematics in schools? Are adequate instructional materials used in the study of the subject? Are teachers encouraged to teach the subject matter? ...

AbstractThis study investigates the Effect of Computer- Instructional Package (COMPUTER INSTRUCTIONAL PACKAGE) on the Performance of Senior Secondary Students in Quadratic Equation in Bida Educational Zone of Niger State, Nigeria. The study examined the significant of performances of students thought using computer instructional package andLecture method. The sample consisted of 120 senior secondary school students drawn from four secondary schools. Stratified random sampling was used toselec...

ABSTRACTIn this paper, a non–linear mathematical model is proposed to study the effects of irresponsible infected immigrants on the spread of HIV/AIDS in a heterogeneous population with a constant recruitment of susceptible receptors. Theequilibrium points, stability analysis, and numerical solution on the model are presented. The Routh–Hurwitz stability condition was employed to examine the stability of the disease– free equilibrium and Next Gene...

ABSTRACTThis project proposes a non – linear mathematical model to study the effect of irresponsible infected immigrants on the spread of HIV/AIDS in a heterogeneous population with a constant recruitment of susceptible. The equilibrium points, stability analysis and numerical simulation on the model are presented. It is realised that at the disease – free equilibrium, the model is stable when the basic reproduction number R0<1 and unstable otherwise. The Routh – Hurwi...

ABSTRACT. In this paper, we present and analyze a choleraepidemiological model with control measures incorporated. Thismodel is extended from the one proposed in [16] by includingthe effects of vaccination, therapeutic treatment, and water san-itation. Equilibrium analysis is conducted in the case with con-stant controls for both epidemic and endemic dynamics. Opti-mal control theory is applied to seek cost-effective solution ofmultiple time-dependent intervention strategies against chol...

ABSTRACTThis study proposes and analyzes a non-linear mathematical model for the dynamicsof HIV/AIDS with treatment and vertical transmission. The equilibrium points of themodel system are found and their stability is investigated.The model exhibits two equilibria namely, the disease-free and the endemicequilibrium. It is found that if the basic reproduction number R0 1, the disease-freeequilibrium is always locally asymptotically stable and in such a case the endemicequilibrium does not e...

INTRODUCTIONThe 21st century requires equipping children with basic education in literacy and numeracy, as the more advanced completes skills needed for living that can serve as the foundation of life, enabling the children to adapt and change life abetting to life changing circumstances. Basic education remains the most important factor that enables the very process in enhancing knowledge, skills and attitudes needed for societal and national growth of any country of the world. Learning is a...

ABSTRACTTechnology is essential in teaching and learning mathematics; it influences the mathematics that is taught and enhances students’ learning. Technology in this context includes computers with appropriate mathematical software, Internet and other digital resources, handheld computing tools and their extensions, and future and emerging forms of similar devices and applications. Technology can be used to facilitate mathematical discovery, understanding, and connections that may be diffi...

AbstractThis paper determined the effect of the convergent and divergent thinking-based instructional strategies in influencing students’ achievement in mathematics. The influence of gender on the achievement of students in mathematics was also ascertained. Two hypotheses were formulated to guide the study. a quasi-experimental pre-test, post-test, non-equivalent control group design involving two experimental groups and one control group was adopted for the study. t...
