Abstract


The study investigated the availability and adequacy of instructional materials, facilities and equipment for the implementation of NCE Mathematics education programme in colleges of education. Instrument used for data collection was NCE Mathematics observation checklist. The data collected was analysed using NCCE minimum requirement bench mark for availability and adequacy of instrument in colleges of education. It was observed that instructional materials for the implementation of NCE Mathematics education programme in colleges of education are available and adequate in most colleges, while in some, they are insufficient and in others, they are unavailable. On the bases of the findings, the following recommendations were made; facilities should be provided in both state and federal colleges of education where they are not as well as inadequate available and teachers should go for in-service training to get abreast with the use of these facilities.
