Mallam Almustapha Ahmad, a mathematics teacher at the Government Science Secondary School, Dutsimma, Katsina State has appealed to stakeholders to show more interest in the teaching and study of mathematics and science education as a whole.

Ahmad, who attended the ongoing 2018 Cowbellpedia Secondary School Mathematics Television Quiz Show, described the subject as a universal ‘language’ used for national development across borders.

He explained that the subject is of central importance to modern society because it provides the vital underpinning of the knowledge of the economy and forms the basis of most scientific and industrial research and development.

According to him, Mathematics is the language of science, technology and other socio-economic development which are universal to the global world of human civilisation.

“Mathematics occupies a crucial and unique role in human societies and represents a strategic key in the development of the whole mankind,” he said.

However, in the preliminary Group A contest of the competition last weekend, Ogun State’s representatives grabbed the first batch of semi-final tickets of the competition, which is marking its 20th anniversary.

Loluwa Abiodun and Akinfoluhan Akinleye, both of The Ambassadors College, Ota, Ogun State, scaled through the preliminary hurdles into the semi-finals in the junior category.

The duo shrugged off the challenge from Victor Dimas of Federal Government College, Ugwolawo, Kogi, State; Tobiloba Akinwande of Greater Tomorrow International College, Arigidi-Akoko, Ondo State; Princewill Olalekan of St Paul Comprehensive Secondary School, Bauchi, Bauchi State; and Ali Uchechukwu Michael of Federal Government Academy, Suleja, Niger State.

Akinfoluhan scored 95 per cent in the qualifying examination and 150 points to win in the second round, describing the experience as exciting and looked forward to qualifying for the final and wear the crown.

“I feel very happy to scale the hurdle, especially being my first time of participating in the competition. I hope to get to the final. I have done a lot of prayers and practice,” he said.

In the senior category of the competition, sponsored by Promasidor Nigeria Limited, Joshua Mark of Nigerian Christian Institute, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State; and Nafisat Abdulwaheed of Reality High School, Ilesha, Osun State survived one tie-break in the first and second rounds to arrive at the semi-finals.

In the spirit of the 20th anniversary, this year’s prize money has been doubled as winners in both categories would receive N2 million with an all-expense paid educational excursion outside the country, while the first and second runners-up will receive N1.5 million and N1 million respectively.

The teachers of the top prize winners will be rewarded with N500,000, while those of the first and second runners-up will receive N400,000 and N300,000 respectively.

The winning schools will also be rewarded with Mathematics textbooks, desktop computers and printers.

You do not know what God is up to. You may feel overlooked, and nobody is giving you credit. Do not worry. God knows how to promote you out of season.
