SKYE Bank Plc says it has partnered
three organisations to improve the
mathematics understanding and
outcomes in the West African School
Certificate, National Examination
Council, General Certificate in
Education, and the Universities
Matriculation Examinations for
junior and senior secondary school
students in the country.
The bank, along with Dragnet
Solutions Limited, Upperlink and Mutual Benefits Assurance
Limited, is powering an online
solution where students can
practise mathematics online and
monitor their performance over
time and ultimately schedule
themselves to compete against
other students.
The online solution, known as
Naija Mathematics Olympiad, is
a response to the high prevalence
of failure in mathematics among students, while its study has remained
a challenge because of the phobia for
figures by students, according to a
statement by the lender.
The statement quoted the Director
of Naija Mathematics Olympiad,
Mr. Andy Akhigbe, as saying that
the solution was a response to the
fact that without a good foundation
in mathematics, Nigerian students
would not be able to compete
effectively in the digital age
