The historical perspective of the deplorable mathematics West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE) performance in the Nigerian secondary schools is explicated upon. National Mathematical Centre (NMC) created Mathematics Improvement Project (MIP), and the project produced germane instructional materials as tools and weapons to banish all the weak and faulty mathematical foundations in MIP (experimental) schools. To achieve this, the NMC resource personnel relying on these instructional materials, trained the MIP teachers and students to effectively use active or model teaching methods to teach and learn mathematics concepts in the curriculum.

 

The impacts of this project (MIP) on students and teachers taken part are tremendous and fulfilling. The mathematics WASSCE high success rate in project (MIP) schools exemplified this. This is even more so (1) using descriptive statistics when comparison is made between mathematics WASSCE nationwide performances before and after the inception of MIP, (2) using non-parametric statistics when comparison is made between mathematics WASSCE performances for MIP and non MIP students in Kogi State.
