Explain your project in details:
After I get employed by government as a mathematics and physics teacher at Mbekenyera Secondary School this year, I meet with poor performance in basic mathematics examinations not only that even the last year there is no grade A in basic mathematics national examination of form four which lead most of the students to see mathematics subject as bad subject,due to that I conducted MATHE TOGETHER, MATHE TOGETHER want to change performance of students at Mbekenyera Secondary School of form one to form four especially in BASIC MATHEMATICS from poor or bad performance to better or best performance by conducting the following activities: MATHEMATICS CHAMPION LEAGUE (MCL) where clubs created in classes for participation and the league ended on the SOLVERS DAYS (31 august 2019), to make the competition better the following followup activities conducted MATHE QUIZZES where each class perform at least two quizzes in a week of basic mathematics, MATHE TESTS where each class perform at least one test per month of basic mathematics, MATHE HELP where I leads students to use the Monday of each week as a day of subject clubs in our school to deals with most occurs challenges in basic mathematics test they performs. MATHE GAMES -on third week of month on Saturday we participate in mathematics games like odd one out, loop the loop, bicycle chain and others where the winners get rewards. MATHE SPEECH- an activity special for students to talk any thing about mathematics and conducted on morning speech in some of the day of the morning speech. MATHE OUT - involve competition between our school and out schools especially neighbor ones on every Saturday of the last week of every month except on solver's day. Rewards are mathematics books, mathematical sets, exercise books and chickens for winners.
Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development
The good performance of basic mathematics in examinations is most wanted in our country because Tanzania wants to move to INDUSTRIALIZATION and MODERATE ECONOMIC which needs a lot of scientists and mathematicians as we know the importance of knowledge of science and mathematics on the part of technology which leads to industrialization and move from poor economic to moderate economic. MATHE TOGETHER aim to make sure the needs of the government is attained and not only that even the performance of basic mathematics needed for other fields and activities in home,and to make students united as most of the activities performed in groups and clubs, and all in all to return heart of students to love mathematics and feel as their home subject which make their brain active all the time since they perform a lot of activities of basic mathematics. Logic behind is most of the students they don't want to meet with challenges of solving as we know our brain like simplicity so to make them attracted and to see mathematics as a simple subject is to involve the things they love and a lot of activities which make them to meet with challenges where they can lean from challenges and make a better performance in mathematics.
Sustainability and future plans
The project accepted by mathematics department, academic leaders and head master so as to make sure it is continuous and also stuff member united with the project and contribute small amount for preparation of rewards to students which make the project to sustain, also after one year we will spread our project to municipal level (RUANGWA MUNICIPAL) where we want great competition and challenges in mathematics which will make a municipal up in basic mathematics results and not only that even to spread to region by cooperating with mathematics teachers, municipal leaders, and region leaders of education. MATHEMATICS is the tool to science subjects, so project plan is to increase the lovers of mathematics.
Your profile as an entrepreneur
My name is Chipanganya Musa Juma(26 years old), born in Mufindi-Iringa Tanzania (1993) , my father originated from Mwera tribe found in Lindi and he was born at Mbekenyera where his father(my grand father) gives his land to missionary and give them the restriction that they can do anything to that land but they are required to build school in order his children to get education. Missionary build school and prove teachers and other educational facilities and on that time act as a middle school later changed to primary school where my father finished his primary education there and then changed to Mbekenyera Secondary School where I was selected as a mathematics and physics teacher which make me very happy and to be motivated to make sure the performance of the students is good all the time and children get right education as my grandfather wants.
