Abstract

The study was carried out during the month of January, 2009 on Factors Contributing to

Poor Performance of Girl Child in Mathematics in Sare Zone. The target group was class

eight female pupils.

Questionnaires were used among form class eight pupils, mathematics teachers and head

teachers of three primary schools. Oral interview was also employed to obtain accurate

information.

Analysis has shown that a number of girls who reach class eight in every school is very

low and their performance in mathematics is poor. Girls have an attitude that mathematics

are hard and that they are male subjects, peer influence from friends, family poverty, lack

of female teachers in school, socio-economic, cultural and social factors are the main

factors that lead to poor performance of girls in mathematics.

Government, teachers, NGOs and community need to work hand in hand through

educative manes, creation of awareness so as to help in improving the poor performance

of girls in mathematics.
