Professional integrity goes beyond the mastery of the subject matter, but involves application of all skills and techniques that would ensure overall development of student toward acquisition of mathematics concepts, skills and competency. This means the teacher should play the role of a teacher, counselor, and comforter and be the role model to his students.
Beside all these, government, students and parents each has a vital role to play towards achieving the set out goals. Researches were conducted by educationists, planners and administrators towards improving the teaching of mathematic. However, contrasting views on the measures to be taken to tackle the lingering problem in mathematics education emerged. But no one will dispute the fact that most problems identified by the researchers centered on teachers personality, our value system, instructional strategies poor counseling services, and students attitude towards mathematics.
