The government approved scheme of work for Primary 1 mathematics for all topics has now been made available here in Nursinghealth.org after rigorous efforts and personal research. This unified (used in all states) scheme of work covers all topics ranging from first term to third term which starts with introduction and revision of the previous term, midterm breaks an revision, examination and vacation.
The primary 1 mathematics scheme of work government approved subjects for all primary schools in Nigeria which makes this scheme of work very important. It is the government revised scheme for all topics for primary 1 mathematics and it is applicable to all states. That is, schools (Private and government owned) operating in all states in Nigeria are advised to make use of this scheme of work as it contains the approved curriculum.
Mathematics is a compulsory subject because they form the core foundation of development for pupils in primary school level up to secondary level.
The primary 1 mathematics scheme of work seen here is the latest revised unified scheme of work according to the Ministry of Education. It is applicable in all states, it is the approved scheme for all basic and primary school level that must be compulsorily adopted by all schools in Lagos, Ogun, Ibadan, Port harcourt, Abuja, Anambra, Delta state and all states in Nigeria be it private or public schools because it is from the scheme of work that national common entrance is curled from.
The government approved primary 1 scheme of work here states all the topics to be treated and how it should be taught. Teaching pupils in primary schools is somewhat different from secondary, for primary schools you need to be more practical in your teaching. Nowadays, audio visual means are now being adopted by majorly private schools in teaching primary 1 mathematics as it helps the children assimilate and remember easily, what has been taught.
Primary 1 scheme of work here also highlights the time frame given to cover each subject because it is the government’s directive that all schools finish the academic session the within the same time frame hence the need to cover all topics within the stipulated period which is usually within 10 to 12 weeks.
In as much as most private schools have adopted the Montessori method of teaching which is centered on independent activity or better put, a more practical method of teaching which involves using physical object or audio visual materials which in turn makes children make creative choices in their learning and this is often tutored by well-trained teacher who guide the pupils in the process, this does not in any way change or make them (private primary schools) adopt another scheme of work, it’s just a different method of imparting knowledge in their pupils.
The government approved scheme of work for primary 1 mathematics is the same with scheme of work used by all states. Say for instance, the Lagos state approved scheme of work primary 1 mathematics is the same with the scheme of work used in the eastern and northern region of Nigeria except for some slight changes which has to do with religious and cultural background. For instance the scheme of work in Lagos and other southwestern states contains Yoruba Language but not present in the northern or eastern region of Nigeria.
