Research Interests

Presently looking into types of culturally relevant Mathematics; Instructional Games (MIC) and Other Instructional Processes that could bring about mathematically creative thoughts in learners of mathematics in Secondary and Tertiary Institutions in Nigeria. This is in line with my main research focus of Selection of African Indigenous Materials to teach mathematics so as to make the subject familiar to the Nigerian Child than hitherto.
