Department Of Mathematics and ICT

HEAD OF DEPARTMENT : Joseph Kinsley Amoah

OVERVIEW

Department of Mathematics and ICT is one of the six departments in the college. The mission of the department involves a practical approach to Mathematics/ICT and engages our students in exploring ways of using this approach to teaching in the Kindergarten, Primary and the Junior High School. By the end of the course we expect our students to demonstrate sound knowledge and understanding of all the topics in the K.G, Primary and Junior High school mathematics curriculum and apply them in real life situations. Students will be equipped with the best and appropriate methodology and Pedagogy of teaching mathematics at the KG and basic level.

The purpose of the ICT course is to acquaint students with technology application commonly found in educational settings. Students will be introduced to computers, word processing, the use of spreadsheets, the development of a database, the use of the web, and some educational software. Students will also be exposed to ways of using the computer to enhance classroom instruction, communication and management.
