Yuko Oso Willis, Sultan Indhamood Omer Personal Characteristics and Performance in Mathematics

In Somaliland mathematics is performed poorly in secondary schools. In 2010-2014, the mean score of mathematics was 53.95% against 73.72% in Languages, 68.68% in Sciences, and 83.16% in S/Studies. But the influence of personal characteristics of the teacher had not been investigated. Guided by Trait Theory of Personality, the study used a cross sectional research design, on a stratified sample of 350 students and 16 teachers in 10 secondary schools in Borama District, in February of 2014. The study found teacher gender (t [14] = -.276, p = .785), and teacher qualification (F [1, 14] = .578, p = .568) had no significant influence on students' performance. But teacher experience (F [1, 14] = 4.375, p = .022), and self-efficacy (F [1, 14] = 10.790, p = .000) had a significant influence on students' performance. The study concluded that teacher's personal characteristics influence performance of students in mathematics. The study recommends that MoEHS conduct awareness education to change the attitude that mathematics is a male friendly subject; and that an experimental study be done to determine the actual effect of teachers' personal characteristics on the performance of students.

Mathematical Understanding for Secondary Teaching. A Framework and Classroom-Based Situations

A perennial discussion about teacher development is the optimal content background for teachers. Inrecent years, that discussion has taken center stage in the work of mathematics education researchers,mathematicians, mathematics professional developers, and mathematics education policymakers. Muchof the existing and prior work in this area has been directed toward mathematical knowledge forteaching at the elementary level. The work described in this volume takes a sometimes-neglectedapproach, focusing on the dynamic nature of mathematical understanding rather than on a stabledescription of mathematical knowledge, and on mathematics for secondary teaching rather thanmathematics for teaching at the elementary level.The work reported in Mathematical Understanding for Secondary Teaching: A Framework and Classroom-Based Situations is a practice-basedresponse to the question of what mathematical understandings secondary teachers could productively use in their teaching. For each of more than 50events, our team of almost 50 mathematics educators who were experienced mathematics teachers developed descriptions of the mathematics thatteachers could use-each of those descriptions (consisting of the event and the mathematics related to the event) is what we call a Situation. Wedeveloped our Framework for Mathematical Understanding for Secondary Teaching (MUST) based on an analysis of our entire set of Situations. Wecall the work practice-based because the MUST framework is based on actu...

Essay from the year 2012 in the subject Pedagogy - Job Education, Occupational Training, Further Education, grade: 1-3, University of Dodoma (College of Education), course: Educational planning, language: English, abstract: This paper is about the growing demand of secondary education in Tanzania and it shows a blink of a missing link to quality. It further defines the overlooked terms by many such as education quality and quality it self. It defines education and what a secondary school education mean and it tresses the growths of education in Tanzania. Just as preferred by (Samra and Rajan, 2006) in most cases in the context of this work primary and secondary education are treated together, because they are inextricably linked in so many ways, and because success at the secondary level is fundamentally dependent on getting the basics right at the primary level. In its briefest sense the work is divided into introduction, discussion of different factors influencing education quality in the context of Tanzania and it provides way forward to curb the withering factors to quality education and its conclusion is made forth.

Document from the year 2012 in the subject Education - Educational Tests & Measurements, , language: English, abstract: Mathematics is an important discipline of learning at the secondary stage. It predominantly contributes to the development of precision, rational and analytical thinking, reasoning and scientific temper. One of the basic aims of teaching Mathematics at secondary stage is to inculcate the skill of quantification of experience gathered by the learner. But still some of the students find Mathematics as very difficult subject. Among different branches of Mathematics, Algebra is used to enable the learner to apply its knowledge to other branches of Mathematics. The pre-requisite test can help the students to know their weaknesses in the basic concepts and it also helps the teachers to know the level of their students. The authors had constructed a pre-requisite test covering all units of Algebra of standard X and implemented on the randomly selected standard X students of the twelve non-granted Gujarati medium schools of Vadodara, Gujarat, India. Based on the findings of the study, the authors discussed and suggested some ways for the teachers teaching Mathematics at secondary school level.

Kakyama Julius School Board and Secondary School Performance

This book aimed at examining school community members' perceptions towards School Boards as management organs at school level and the extent to which such Boards have contributed to the prevailing trend of secondary education system. School Board is legally responsible for all school operations. Contrary to this, School Boards' contribution to secondary school improvement is minimal because Board members are not involved fully in every issue that occurs at schools. This is because of lack of professional background in education, poor representativeness, lack of commitment and managerial skills among Board members. This book has been designed to help those professionally engaged in secondary education management because of its practical orientation. This book provides direction and guidance to educational leaders, University and Teachers' Colleges' lecturers, tutors and students as well as serving as a valuable reference material for their courses and implementations. The book recommends that School Boards should be well informed about their school responsibilities to be effective in enhancing schools' performance socially and academically for school community members' benefits.

Ellinami Minja The Term Structure and Treasury Bill Market Efficiency in Tanzania The Term Structure of Interest Rates and the Efficiency of the Primary Market of Treasury Bills in Tanzania

There is an increasing trend of the conduct of monetary policy in developing countries to mirror, at least on paper, those in developed economies. The structures in the former economies are not only different but they are also weak in some areas. One aspect that came with the liberalization of the financial markets in Tanzania was changing the trading of Treasury securities in the primary market to the auction system which uses discriminatory prices, rather than a single uniform price, in allocating securities to bidders. This, however, was not coupled with development of an organized secondary market for the Treasury securities. Consequently, the resulting yield curve and the efficiency of this market may be expected to be different from where secondary markets are well developed. This work provides an initial assessment of the Treasury bill auction system in Tanzania and the efficiency of the primary market. It forms a basis for understanding the term structure of interest rates in Tanzania and analyzing the yield curve and the integrity of the auction process.

Hence, this study investigated the professional use of Electronic Communication Media by teachers in Kenyan secondary schools. The specific research questions were: What are the teachers' perceptions on professional use of Electronic Communication Media in secondary schools in Kenya? How are Electronic Communication Media used by teachers in secondary schools? What issues influence teachers' use of Electronic Communication Media in secondary schools in Kenya? The study was done in Machakos County. A mixed approach was used where both qualitative and quantitative data were concurrently generated. A sample of 59 schools, drawn from all the eight districts of the county was taken involving a total of 227 teachers in the quantitative aspect and Four purposively selected principals in the qualitative bit.

Placidius Ndibalema Expansion of Secondary Education in Tanzania

Seminar paper from the year 2012 in the subject Pedagogy - School Pedagogics, grade: none, University of Dodoma, course: Foundations of Education, language: English, abstract: This paper reviews the trends of secondary education expansion in Tanzania. It is argued that various policy stances and approaches to education planning have served as blue prints for expanding this level of education in the country over time. It is further pointed out that; the whole process of expansion goes together with reasonable quality. Each policy stance and approach to planning on expansion of secondary education is observed with its impacts on educational performance in relation to quality. The paper also addresses the issues related to the couple of limitations and challenges of the quality education that calls for more innovations, more strategic planning as well as a strong political will of seeing to it that expansion is both creating more access and effectively empowers those who happen to access this education. The paper suggests the need for an increased number of studies that should shape policies aimed at making education inclusive, responding to the diverse needs and circumstances of learners and giving appropriate weight to the abilities, skills, and knowledge they bring to the teaching learning process. It further, recommends the effective and strategic engagement of various actors of education in decision making whenever new reforms and policies come in education system. Finally,...

Alexander Karp, Nicholas Wasserman Mathematics in Middle and Secondary School. A Problem Solving Approach

The experience and knowledge acquired in teacher education courses should build important fundamentalsfor the future teaching of mathematics. In particular, experience in mathematical problem solving, and inplanning lessons devoted to problem solving, is an essential component of teacher preparation. This bookdevelops a problem solving approach and is intended to be a text used in mathematics education courses (orprofessional development) for pre-service or in-service middle and secondary school teachers. It can be usedboth in graduate and undergraduate courses, in accordance with the focus of teacher preparation programs.The content of the book is suited especially for those students who are further along in their mathematicseducation preparation, as the text is more involved with mathematical ideas and problem solving, anddiscusses some of the intricate pedagogical considerations that arise in teaching. The text is written not as anintroduction to mathematics education (a first course), but rather as a second, or probably, third course. Thebook deals both with general methodology issues in mathematics education incorporating a problem solvingapproach (Chapters 1-6) and with more concrete applications within the context of specific topics - algebra, geometry, and discrete mathematics(Chapters 7-13).The book provides opportunities for teachers to engage in authentic mathematical thinking. The mathematical ideas under consideration build onspecific middle and secondary school ...

Akampurira Abraham The effectiveness of teachers. performance appraisal in secondary schools in Kabale Municipality

Master's Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Pedagogy - The Teacher, Educational Leadership, grade: 3.0, , course: Educational Management, language: English, abstract: The study was carried out to investigate the effectiveness of Teachers' Performance in Secondary Schools. The methods used include qualitative and quantitative approaches to collect and analyse data. The research study was carried out in Kabale Municipality where it was found out that performance appraisal is not generally well conducted. There is poor feedback management, where appraisal results are not used for staff promotion, professional development or determining remunerations. Poor feedback has also bred into negative results like demotion, abuse and reduced salary.All the above have therefore resulted into staff failing to fill appraisal forms or when filled they fail to submit them to the Ministry of Education to use the appraisal results for staff promotion, job improvement and counselling sessions to improve staff competence.

Jane Jones Learning in USA Algebra Classes - Instructor Perceptions of Student Learning in Secondary and Postsecondary Algebra Classes

Knowledge of algebra is the critical gatekeeper for success in completing high school and postsecondary training. In the United States 22% of entering freshmen are under-prepared for college mathematics. Researchers have documented disconnects between secondary and postsecondary mathematics' expectations, but little is known about instructor perceptions of student learning in algebra classes. A researcher-developed survey was administered to a random sample of high school, community college, and university mathematics instructors to determine how well they believed students were mastering algebra content in high school and college algebra classes. Findings indicated there are differences in instructors' perceptions of algebra learning in high school and in credit-bearing college algebra classes. The book should help establish the importance of significant three-way dialogue between high school, community college, and university instructors in order to find ways to enable students to make successful transitions from high school to college mathematics, and should be of interest to secondary and postsecondary mathematics professionals.

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2010 in the subject Sociology - Knowledge and Information, grade: A, Atlantic International University (School of Social and Human Studies), course: Doctorate in Education, language: English, abstract: The primary purpose of this research was to investigate the effects of individual student affective factors and educational background on mathematics achievement among higher education students as measured by semester grades in the core mathematics courses. Student Locus of Control, Self-Efficacy, and Mathematics Anxiety were the specific individual student affective factors that were examined in the study. Educational backgrounds of the students were examined as an attempt to explain the differences in mathematics performance at the higher education level. To achieve this, high school teacher characteristics and instructional practices in influencing students' affective factors were examined. All of the analyses presented were performed on data collected for the study from two institutions of higher education in Cameroon for the student participants and from high school mathematics teachers of the English-Speaking and the French-Speaking subsystems of education. The results of the study show that student internal locus of control, high mathematics self-efficacy, and Mathematics Anxiety were associated with performance in mathematics at the higher education level.

Besides running schools, colleges and universities, Government of Nepal has used a large amount of money for educational programmes. But when a teacher enters the class to teach, it is found that they are bound to use traditional methods of teaching in spite of using participatory pedagogies. This book reflects on 'teaching as a culture' in the context of Nepal. It is an autoethnography of a high school teacher who has spent more than two decades in teaching mathematics in secondary schools of Nepal. Basically, this book focuses on how the writer learned mathematics in his school and university days, how his learning is reflected on his teaching, what experiences did he achieve from his classroom practices, what sorts of changes did he bring in his classroom, and the most important part is why is he not able to use participatory pedagogies in teaching mathematics in the classroom even though he is enriched by several student-centred teaching learning methods. This book will be useful for school teachers, students, school principals, school administrators, curriculum makers and analysts, researchers, and project executives especially in the educational sectors.

Teachers are called nation builders in every country and in every society. The role of teachers is of great importance. It is left to the teachers to inculcate personality characteristics, right values - the values of good citizenship producing law abiding and nation loving citizens. India has made considerable progress in school education since independence with reference to overall literacy, infrastructure and universal access and enrolment in schools. Two major developments in the recent years form the background to the present reform in teacher education - the political recognition of Universalization of Elementary Education (UEE) as a legitimate demand and the state commitment towards UEE in the form of the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009. The country has to address the need of supplying well qualified and professionally trained teachers in larger numbers in the coming years. At the same time, the demand for quality secondary education is steadily increasing. It is recommended that the aim should be to reach universal secondary education within a maximum of ten years. Given the problems of inadequate quality in most secondary schools due to poor infrastructure and insufficient and poorly equipped teachers, the need for addressing the professional education of secondary teachers acquires great importance.The education of teachers should be such that teachers should set an example and provide for their pupils the ideal of the citizens who is co...

Jepkemboi Ruth Choge Guidance and Counselling in Secondary Schools

This book highlights professionalism and effectiveness of the teacher counsellor in student Guidance and Counselling in secondary schools in Nandi County, Kenya. The author points out that in Kenya, teachers are not trained as professional counsellors yet every school has a Guidance and Counselling Department. Jepkemboi establishes that Guidance and Counselling in secondary schools is not the responsibility of teacher counsellors per se; rather, other stake holders such as school chaplains, parents, head teachers and peer counsellors play a role in Guidance and Counselling services. She observes that Guidance and Counselling facilities, in secondary schools, are not adequate and effective. Therefore, the author recommends that the government trains and deploys teacher counsellors to schools for effective co-ordination of Guidance and Counselling programs. She posits that there should also be a continuous professional development for the present teacher counsellors to equip them with knowledge and skills on effective Guidance and Counselling. This book is a must-read for teacher educators, professional school counsellors, school teachers and school principals in Kenya and beyond.

The prevailing day to day demonstrations, riots, and chaos waged by university students in Tanzania are a result of poor education policies, one of them being the financing of higher education policy. This book examines the policy and how the poor can access education. It notes that the Higher Education Students' Loans Board which is charged with the task of providing loans to poor students has failed to do the job since it disburses loans to whoever manages to fill up the loan forms. Yet, one can get the loan at certain percentage or at times one cannot get even a single coin. The book may be useful to higher education financing policy actors and students in Tanzania and beyond.

The study investigates the hypothesis that language teaching in se­condary schools does not correspond to the requirements claimed by the labour market. Is it because of the insufficient teaching methods, or the poorly organized and compiled syllabus? Or is it because of deficiencies of the individual regarding communication skills? Can it be the lack of experience? In what percentage may the lack of feed­back be responsible? Are there any differences between secondary school and language school English teaching? Are language schools more practical, and aim-oriented?The study examines and analyses the possible reasons of this pheno­mena, including literature overview, assessment of coursebooks and teaching techniques, and analyses the responses on the ques­tionnaires distributed in secondary/language schools, and in the field of labour market.

Sandy Mar The Influence of School Leadership Practices on Classroom Management, School Environment, and Academic Attainment in Kazakhstan

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2016 in the subject Education - Educational Tests & Measurements, grade: 2.1, , language: English, abstract: This study investigated the effects of distributed leadership practices on the job satisfaction and motivation of teachers for increased academic performance from the perspective of a basic secondary school situated in an urban area of Kazakhstan. It employed the critical paradigm to examine the teachers' motivational levels and job satisfaction as members of the decision-making processes in the case study school. Therefore, this study used five semi-structured interviews on five randomly selected participants who gave the qualitative data analyzed. The coding of the gathered data identified five key themes analyzed in section 4. The findings indicate that the participants unequivocally challenged the hierarchical leadership style witnessed in the country's public schools since they feel that they are oppressive in nature and demean the teachers' opinions leading to teachers' frustration in the teaching profession and poor schools academic performance. Consequently, this study proposes the distributed leadership form to enable teachers to develop a sense of ownership, responsibility, collaboration, and fulfilled life that arises from being part of the decision-making process in their school.
