For every other reason, the school is fun, not until the bell rings and the footsteps of the maths teacher sound play the scary thought of long formula, divisions, additions and multiplication principles that must compulsorily stick to your brain before exams and forever.
Dr Ishola Salami who is a lecturer at the Department of Early Childhood Education, University of Ibadan, wore the lens of primary school students and saw exactly what makes us dread the compulsory mathematics. Dr Salami did not just see what the problem was, but he brought sounds to the problems of mathematics.
He composed a song which he titled “Math music”.
The song, he said will help primary school students understand mathematics without making it cumbersome.
Mathematics; he also said, is a subject that makes student useful to themselves and society. And the reason behind the number of students who fail maths is as a result of a poor approach by teachers. He encouraged the government and teachers to make subjects easy-to-learn by students.
