Cameroon: Teaching of Mathematics – Accord Seeks to Improve Quality in Secondary Schools

The teaching and learning of Mathematics in Secondary schools in Cameroon will henceforth take a different dimension following the signing of a partnership agreement between the African Institute of Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) in collaboration with Mastercard Foundation and the Ministry of Higher Education on the one hand and the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Minister of Secondary Education on the other. It paves the way for a five-year pilot programme to see the light of the day. The main objective of the programme launched yesterday January 19, 2016, at the Amphi Theatre of the Higher Teachers’ Training College (ENS) Yaounde by the Prime Minister, Head of Government, Philemon Yang, is to improve the quality of teaching and learning of Mathematics in Cameroonian secondary schools.
