    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.

    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.

    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.
