Adults Return to Mathematics: A Proposed Project in Uganda by the Uganda Mathematical Society (UMS).
Kaahwa, Janet
This paper provides information on a project by the Uganda Mathematical Society (UMS) that aims to popularize mathematics in Uganda. UMS believes that if parents learn mathematics (primary and secondary), they will be able to help their children themselves instead of hiring others to coach their children as is the practice today. Another way to popularize mathematics according to UMS is to equip teachers with content and skills in teaching so that they teach for understanding what they themselves understand. Another category of adults that the project hopes to serve are those that failed to join university straight from school. Results of a questionnaire to determine the needs of parents, teachers, and mature-age entrants into university are described. (ASK)
