The study aims to discuss the common tendency of students towards mathematics remediation programmes. This study centred on students’ perceptions regarding the teaching &amp; Learning of Mathematics, specifically, however, the educational surroundings impacts their perceptions as students of Mathematics in terms of confidence, anxiety, enjoyment, motivation, and therefore the connection of Mathematics in personal and skilled Experiences. Data obtained from this study indicated that factors contributing to poor performance include lack of motivation, poor attitude of students towards Mathematics courses and retrogressive practices. It is envisaged that rising on these factors and sensitization of students to discard practices that proscribe learner’s effective participation in finding out the topic may improve their performance in mathematics. It is likely that improved mathematics performance will give learners opportunities to pursue mathematics-related HE degree programmes at higher institutions of learning.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> Nehru Erode Santhanam Ritu Shrivastava George Toworfe ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2019-02-20 2019-02-20 10 3359 3367 10.24297/ijrem.v10i0.7761 A Teaching-learning about optimization problems: a close up through the use of GeoGebra software https://rajpub.com/index.php/ijrem/article/view/8090 <p>A teaching-learning proposal is described for the treatment of optimization problems in the pre-university student. The theoretical-methodological elements fall into the heuristic principles and resources and the use of GeoGebra software, on this basis is conceived the identification, selection and formalization of the way of solution, control and assessment as fundamental stages. This work contributes to a proposal to approach the treatment of the study of the variation of the functions, prior to the classic presentation of the mathematical content using the derivative.</p> Armando Morales Efren Marmolejo Vega Edgardo Locia Espinoza Alejo López González Angie Damián Mojica ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2019-02-20 2019-02-20 10 3368 3376 10.24297/ijrem.v10i0.8090
