Girls Show Less Interest In Mathematics – Presidency by joshuisiukwu: 5:19am On Apr 15
Nigeria's Presidency has raised concern, as it claimed that girls show less interest in Mathematics across and further advised teachers and parents to redouble their effort to improve the learning of mathematical science in schools across the country.

Princess Adejoke Orelope-Adefulire, the Senior Special Assistant to the president on Sustainable Development Goals, (SDGs) who spoke on behalf of the Presidency stated that girls show less interest in Mathematics as she appealed to relevant organisations to adequately fund the girl- child education with a view to reducing street hawking among young girls in the country.

Also speaking at the SDGs Mathematics Competition and the crowning of the National Mathematics Queen organized by National Mathematical Centre (NMC) in Abuja recently, Director of NMC, Prof. Stephen Onah regretted that the Nigerian girl student has been placed in a disadvantaged position, especially in the area of education, which he said, had relegated her in the general scheme of things.

Yes, that's right, cause girls by their nature are mathematical equations. An element shows less interest in itself.

I don't believe this...its either the data is wrong or it's an old research... currently in most schools (primary, secondary and tertiary) the girl child is topping most classes and departments in the various fields... boys ain't studying again like before...

You should be concerned about their parents affording fees and feeding first.

Your out of school children and unemployment is beyond imagination, but here you are talking about maths

That's not true, i served in a secondary school, the two classes i took, the top ten in my maths exams were girls... It seems boys are getting less interested in school generally these days, not just mathematics.

But then will u even blame them? When they see their elder ones who were very serious with school, graduated and no job, the ones wey get luck de do Npower, what then is the motivation? What will u tell them is the incentives of being studious

Big lie, That's how most female course mate in university where showing us fire. Their brains were BI-TURBO POWER CHARGED. Most don't stress themselves about getting a job in this disaster called country and the married ones are full time house wives.

Dont mind em, Nigerian girls are even better than guys when it come to maths, though research shows that guy's are good at math than girls, but in my Nigerian - girls are better at maths than guys.

But I think when it comes to technical stuff, girls are poor in that aspect.

The equation is not balanced yet. My wife studied Mathematics and came out the best in her set. But then the ability to provide a good job for them is the issue. Although some girls are lazy about anything that has to do with serious calculation
Re: Girls Show Less Interest In Mathematics – Presidency by Lizilicious(f): 6:52am On Apr 15
So of all the things happening in Nigeria, the presidency is only concerned about girls liking that god-awful subject?

Jesus!!!
