Demystify fear in studying Mathematics - Teachers urged
The Headmaster of the Wa Senior High School, Adam Iddrisu Thirdman, has urged Mathematics teachers to work towards demystifying the “mysteries” surrounding the study of the subject to make it appealing to students.
“There is nothing difficult about Mathematics,” he said, adding that some students considered the subject to be difficult probably due to the level of preparation and the resources available to them and their teachers.
He thus called for support from all stakeholders to support the school with the necessary materials to aid teaching and learning.
Mr Thirdman said this when the 1988-year Group of the school donated assorted Mathematics textbooks to its alma mater towards improving the quality of teaching and learning.
The books comprised 225 elective and core mathematics valued at about GH¢24,000 from contributions made by the old students.
The headmaster expressed gratitude to the old students for the diverse support of the school over the years, which included the construction of a 2000 capacity auditorium by a member of the 1970-year group, Alban Bagbin, the current Speaker of Parliament.
