Trigonometry

Trigonometry (from Greek trigōnon, "triangle" and metron, "measure"[1]) is a branch of mathematics that studies relationships involving lengths and angles of triangles. The field emerged in the Hellenistic world during the 3rd century BC from applications of geometry to astronomical studies.[2]The 3rd-century astronomers first noted that the lengths of the sides of a right-angle triangle and the angles between those sides have fixed relationships: that is, if at least the...

Systematic study of z transform and its analysis on Discrete Time Systems

                    ABSTRACTIn this project work, we have established a systematic study of z transform and its analysis on Discrete Time (DT) systems. The researcher also deal with Linear Time Invariant (LTI) system and Difference Equation as examples of DT systems. The right and left shift was use as a method of solution of the z transform to linear difference equation.CHAPTER 1          &nb...

The relationships between students’ attitude towards mathematics and their performance in mathematics

It is said that mathematics is the gate and key of the sciences. According to the famous philosopher Kant, “A science is exact only in so far as it employs mathematics”. So all scientific education which does not commence with mathematics is said to be defective at its foundation, In fact it has formed the basis for the evolution of scientific development all over. Taking into cognizance, the usefulness, relevance and importance of mathematics, like bringing positive changes to the scient...

The Effect of Anxiety on Performance of Students in Mathematics: A Case Study of Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education, Lagos State, Nigeria

This research work ‘’THE EFFECT OF ANXIETY ON PERFORMANCE OF STUDENTS IN MATHEMATICS’’ focuses on the relationship between Mathematics anxiety and students performance. A descriptive experimental research design was used to investigate the research questions. The population consisted of 120 pre-service teachers at Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education, Ojo Local Government, Lagos State. A personal data questionnaire was used to gather demographic and anxiety information about the pa...

Arithmetic of Analysis (Supremum and Infimum)

I can still remember my expression and feeling when we were asked to show that sup(A + B) = sup(A) + sup(B). It was an herculean task because the concept was too difficult to grasp with the use of approximation property until I discovered an easy route. In a bid to restrict my papers to just few pages, I will focus more on examples than theorems.

A Survey of Linear Programming Concepts

Linear programming is a mathematical tool that is used to maximize or minimize a function when constraints are linear. In this project, we considered some examples and applications of linear programming problems. TABLE OF CONTENTS  Title page Certification                      Dedication                      Acknowledgements        &nb...

TIME SERIES ANALYSIS ON SOME SELECTED NON OIL PRODUCE IN NIGERIA (A CASE STUDY OF CASH CROPS & LIVESTOCK)

ABSTRACT           In the period of the 1970’s, Agriculture was the main stay of the Nigeria economy. The oil boom of 1970’s brought about a gradual shift from agriculture to crude oil making Nigeria to depend heavily on petroleum as main source of foreign exchange earnings. Agriculture sector which use to be the back bone of the economy was rendered competitive over time. The crux of this study is to analyze the revenue generated from selected non-oil produce in Nig...

Credit Risk Models

In Financial Institutions such as banks and other firms, we face financial risk whichemanates from different source. Credit Risk as one of the prominent risk, had beenfound to reduce the efficiency of banks and other financial firms, hence, the researchto model the risk .In this project, several models used to evaluate credit risk, including their drawbacks,frame works and strengths are reviewed.

APPLICATION OF NUMERICAL ANALYSIS TO ALGEBRAIC AND TRANSCENDENTAL EQUATIONS

ABSTRACTIn this paper we introduce, numerical study of some iterative methods for solving non linear equations. Many iterative methods for solving algebraic and transcendental equations are presented by the different formulae. Using bisection method, false position method, secant method and the Newton’s iterative method and their results are compared. The bisection, Regular Falsi, Newton-Raphson and secant method were applied to a single variable function over the interval [0,1]. Numerical ...

SYSTEMATIC APPROACH OF RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

In this work, we try to analyse the approach of writing a highly reputable published researched work. The concept of research is discussed which includes some technical definitions of research. To further the discussion,  we explain the five main important components of research approach processes which include : introductory part, literature review, methods of analysis,  main result,  discussion,  conclusion, recommendation and finally the references. Dr. Ekaka-a Enu-Obari N (2018) defi...
