Why students lose interest in Mathematics — Educationist

An educationist, Mr Philip Balogun, on Friday said that many students lose interest in Mathematics because of the difficult and cumbersome processes applied by their teachers.

Balogun, who is Vice Principal, Grace Group of Schools, Gbagada, spoke in an interview with our reporter in Lagos.

He said for this reason, many children, right from the tender age, developed cold feet in solving mathematics problems.

The educationist said there was a need to be more creative in teaching the subject to make such students interested in it.

According to him, adopting the computer in teaching them the subject and how to solve problems can be a means of endearing them to it.

Balogun said the computer makes it easier for students to assimilate and sharpens their numerical sense, which is naturally endowed to everyone.
