Mathematics in Everyday Life
Mathematics is a universal subject that applies to every aspect and level of human affairs. You make use of fraction, proportion, and ratio every time you vary the quantity of salt and seasoning cubes according to the size of the broth or share gifts amongst people. Consider how you plan your expenses to meet your income. You make use of percentages and basic arithmetic. Consider how you calculate your journey time based on your journey history. You’re definitely using probability, and distance and time. The truth is every time, we make use of mathematical lessons without knowing it. It is impossible to hate maths, as it is fondly called, and not use it.
This, perhaps, made Roger Bacon — a 13th-century English scholar — say that “neglect of mathematics works injury to all knowledge since he who is ignorant of it cannot know the other sciences or the things of the world.”
Aristotle called mathematics ‘the science of quantity’. More formally, it is the science of structure, order, and relation that has evolved from counting, measuring, and counting the shapes of objects. (Britannica)
For many secondary school students, Maths bears many qualifiers. But none is endearing. From ‘crazy’ to ‘scary’, ‘hard’ to ‘worrisome’, ‘ache-inducing’ to ‘loathsome’, it is clear that math phobia is a common experience among many students in Nigeria. This hatred, unfortunate as it is, is often as a result of a number of reasons, i.e. the poor teaching techniques of many maths teachers, poor knowledge of the course itself on the part of many teachers, and the unpleasant learning experience for many students.
However, maths is one of the very important subjects in secondary school. Without passing it, a student cannot move to the next academic level. It is also the foundation of other subjects in the sciences such as physics, chemistry, and biology.
Secondary school students are expected to learn topics like geometry and measures, algebra, probability and statistics, logarithms, and the almighty word problems which actually seem more like World problems. These topics will be taught within the approved six years before the students face the culminant GCSE. It is believed that these topics, if well understood, prepare a student to face college education.
Not only for mathematics, but Ibadan is also reputed as one of the most educated cities in Nigeria. In fact, it is home to the first university in Nigeria and one of the first in Africa, the University of Ibadan. These feats in education profile Oyo as “The Pacesetter State”.
Like in every state, every secondary school in Ibadan profile math as one of the compulsory subjects that students must face. Hence, you will be taught mathematics by enrolling at any approved secondary school. Self-study books on math lessons are also available at libraries, i.e. the IITA Knowledge Centre or the National Library of Nigeria that you can make use of.
If you need personalised lessons, you can hire a private tutor for maths and science. From Agodi to Oluyole or Iyaganku, there are many private home tutors available across Oyo state from whom you can learn. If you don’t have a maths tutor nearby, you can get a tutor online. You sure will find a maths teacher on an expert-approved private tutor website like Superprof.
If you’re much older, you can also find a maths tutor for adults because maths lessons are for everyone. You may want to be specific in your search on Google or any math tutor website. If you want to retake GCSE and need remedial lessons, typing ‘maths tutor GCSE’ will give you better options. If you are planning to take A-Level, typing ‘maths tutor a level’ will serve you better. Such specificity helps to provide you with the profile of the best matching available maths tutors.
A mathematics teacher can take a job in schools or become a freelancer providing maths home tuition. If you’re a maths tutor for primary school, you need to be fun and calm to help your students understand better. If you are an online mathematics tutor who gives lessons through webcam, you may need to include games in your lesson to take your tutoring to the next level. And if you’re a private math teacher who does physical mathematics tutorial, you should have enough patience and good explanation skills to succeed at your job.
