  5. APPLICATION OF GEOMETRY IN MATHEMATICS EDUCATION FOR SOCIETAL TRANSFORMATION AND ATTAINMENT OF VISION 20:20 20 IN PORT HARCOURT METROPOLIS, RIVERS STATE

    DR. (MRS) OLADAYO, C. E.

    Abstract

    The purpose of the study is to determine the application of geometry in mathematics to different professions for societal transformation for the attainment of vision 20:2020. Descriptive survey design was adopted for the study. Stratified random sampling was used on a total of 6,233 professionals that form the population to select 1950 respondents from the professions which are medical, science technology, vocation, and educational professions. Two research questions and three hypotheses were tested. Questionnaire was used for data collection. Experts in the field of mathematics and the supervisor validated the instrument. The collected data was analyzed using Mean ( ), Standard Deviation (SD), t-test and One-Way Analysis of Variance. The result of the analysis revealed that application of geometry influenced all professions to a large extent. The extent of the influence as revealed by post hoc analysis using Shafer is as follows. Application of geometry influenced science technology more than the teaching profession.

  6. Autonomic Computing: An Evidence of Better Management Technology

    Amadin, F. I. & Obienu A. C

    ABSTRACT: The increasing complexity, heterogeneity, dynamism and interconnectivity in software applications, services and networks has led to complex, unmanageable and insecure systems. This complexity has increased the cost and errors of managing information technology infrastructures, as well as, threatens to undermine the benefits information technology aims to provide. All these issues has necessitated the search for an alternate paradigm of system and application design, which can based on biological systems strategies, to deal with similar challenges of scale, complexity, heterogeneity, and uncertainty – a vision that has been referred to as Autonomic Computing.

  7. BANKER – CUSTOMER RELATIONSHIP

    Akenroye, Christopher Taiwo

    Introductory Background A person who opens an account (with a financial institution) enters into a contractual relationship with such a bank. The precise terms of this contract depend upon the type of account. Traditionally, account opening with a bank could be in the form of Current, Savings and Fixed Deposit account. However, by extension, other variant (types) of accounts could also be opened and operated with the form of “hybrid” features of the traditional types of account. Further, due to high technological invention and innovation, modern types of electronic accounts (i.e Plastic card accounts) (eg WUMT, MasterCard, VisaCard, etc) are in use today.

  10. Dynamical behaviour of radio refractivity in Akure, Southwestern Nigeria

    Prof. Ibiyinka Fuwape et. al.

    Abstract Chaos has been investigated in the surface radio refractivity data over Akure, Southwestern Nigeria using the Brock-Dechert-Scheinkmen (BDS) test. The data were obtained from the ERA-Interim reanalysis data for a space of eleven years (January 2004 to December 2014). The computed radio refractivity calculated was then examined for chaos using the BDS statistics. The BDS statistics test can be applied to a series of refractivity values to check whether the refractivity values are independently and identically distributed.

  11. Dynamics of vertical profile of radio refractivity in Akure, South-Western Nigeria

    Prof. Ibiyinka Fuwape

    Abstract This research investigated fractal and chaotic dynamics in the vertical profile radio refractivity in the atmosphere using Tsallis Entropy, Hurst Exponent and Largest Lyapunov Exponent (LLE). Daily temperature, relative humidity and radio refractivity data obtained from the European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) Re-Analysis Project at thirty seven (37) different atmospheric pressure level from 1979 - 2014 were used in this study.

  13. EMERGENT ISSUES CONFRONTING THE EFFECTIVE TEACHING AND LEARNING OF MATHEMATICS IN NIGERIAN PRIMARY SCHOOLS.

    DR. (MRS) OLADAYO, C. E.

    Abstract

    The primary school is the foundation upon which every other educational level depends. Mathematics is the subject that every nation needs for a successful scientific and technological growth. The study therefore investigated the emergent issues confronting the effective teaching and learning of mathematics in Nigerian primary schools. Two objectives, two research questions and two hypotheses guided the study. The survey research design was employed. The population comprised of all primary school teachers in the South-South Geo-political zone of Nigeria. A simple random sampling technique was used to select a sample of eighteen (18) primary schools (three primary schools from each of the six states that make up the South South Zone). A twenty-item researcher constructed questionnaire titled Mathematics Teaching Questionnaire in Primary Schools (MTQPS) was used to collect data.

  20. MATHEMATICS EDUCATION: A PANACEA FOR TECHNOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENT IN NIGERIA

    DR. (MRS) OLADAYO, C. E.

    Abstract

    Nigeria is still struggling to move out of the third world countries to first world and also to become one of the twenty economically developed countries of the world. Up till now, Nigeria has not been able to have all the machinery needed for production, innovations and expertise to develop her industries and to work in the existing ones. More importantly, the country is lacking in technological development which is the main drive for growth and development. Mathematics education which is the queen of all sciences, and which application is needed in all sphere of Nigeria’s technological development has not been given its proper place and attention. This paper highlights in rationale, challenges, application of Mathematics education in bringing Nigeria out of her wood to reckoning among the comity of nations. Recommendation were also made on how Mathematics education can thrive thereby becoming a panacea for technological development in Nigeria.
