WHY STUDENTS FAIL AT SCHOOL AND THE SECRET OF MATHEMATICS AS I SEE IT…BY OBAFEMI TOLULOPE

1.WHY SOME STUDENTS FAIL

Majority of students fail not because they do not have academic potentials or are not well equipped but because they choose to fail deliberately.

Some careless students fail because they will never realize that little things matter a lot. Such careless students either over estimate or under estimate simple instructions. The consequence of this leads to failure. And when they asked to do some assignment in class, they will not do it, instead, they usually engage themselves in worthless and useless activities.

Lots of other things really contribute to failure. For instance some parent over – pamper their children such that when they get to school, they become totally useless to themselves. They tend to flout school rules and regulations against smoking, drinking and roaming about aimlessly. These are usually detrimental to their academic pursuits.

Also some parents lavish so much money on their children who in turn indulge in luxuries and lifestyles not befitting their status as learners or students. One can say some parents do not take education seriously themselves.

In many schools, girls spend most of their time “making up” just as boys do over – shine their footwear there by wasting most of their precious time with their parents’ hand-earned money for facial make-up to the neglect of their studies.

Surely, it is how one lays his or her bed that he/she lies on it. If a student is determined to succeed and tenaciously works hard, there is no reason such a student should not succeed in life.

2.ODUMOSU: OUR BLESSED GIFT.

He hails from Ogun State
He sits great among men
Day in, day out on the desk
Not boastful not selfish
And for his pupils’ success, he toils
Oh! Our gifted prince of knowledge
Raining or burning the day may be
He is ready for service.
Moving from one class to another
Giving necessary hands to students
Strict and cheerful to all workers
If everyone should realize his good deeds
Our respect for him should ever remain great
And lasting even If all names are forgotten
Yours will ever stand king in our memory
It shall be written in letters of gold
Raised high on a silver stand
Where neither dust nor stain dare come
A befitting statue shall witness your worth forever
And you shall see the goodness in the world.
Odumosu, our blessed gift

3.THE SECRET OF MATHEMATICS AS I SEE IT

Almost the enemy of most students
The most logical subject
Whenever an error is made
It never works again
Or it turns the other way round
Barrier to most education courses
Your very high average in all others subjects will not help
Unless an average is obtained in it
It is like a lion barring your way
You either turn back because you cannot cope with it
Or you kill it and go on your way
Everybody plans to kill the lion and go on
But many cannot cope with it
It therefore obstruct their ways
Also when a problem is solved
If you check it is always true
For some, it turns to be magic at this stage
They lose all hope
But cane is there, to force some to kill the lion
And continue their journey
But there are some who insist
On putting more effort
But such students should know that
Determination always wins in the end
The secret of Mathematics
Is continuous practice
So, fellow students
Do the right thing at the right time
