Firm Launches Na­tional Quiz Show

THISDAY - - NEWSXTRA -

To fur­ther deepen the in­ter­est of stu­dents in Math­e­mat­ics, an in­ter­na­tional ed­u­ca­tional ser­vices firm, Test­mas­ter Ed­u­ca­tion Ltd, has in­tro­duced a na­tional math­e­mat­ics TV quiz show, tagged ‘Mas­ter of Math’.

The firm’s Chief Op­er­a­tions Of­fi­cer and co-founder, Ofir Zukovsky, said the show is an an­nual na­tional Math­e­mat­ics quiz that pro­vides Nige­rian Se­nior Se­condary 2 stu­dents op­por­tu­nity to com­pete on live TV against and along­side their peers.

Zukovsky, who spoke re­cently at the firm’s of­fice in La­gos, said there are three stages of the com­pe­ti­tion: state, re­gional and na­tional. He ex­plained that the win­ner of the quiz shall get N200,000 and a tro­phy, while the first and sec­ond run­ners up shall re­ceive N150,000 and N100,000 re­spec­tively.

The top three stu­dents from each state at stage one and maths teach­ers of all the win­ning stu­dents at state and na­tional level, will also re­ceive cash prizes. In ad­di­tion, ex­penses like transportation, ac­com­mo­da­tion and feed­ing will be paid for by the or­gan­is­ers.

Ad­di­tion­ally, on Fe­bru­ary 19, 2019, all reg­is­tered school maths teach­ers will par­tic­i­pate in a free na­tional math­e­mat­ics teacher one day work­shop de­signed around is­sues in math­e­mat­ics teach­ing, strate­gies and in­no­va­tion. The on­line reg­is­tra­tion scratch card can be ob­tained from any state rep­re­sen­ta­tive and Nige­rian Post Of­fice. Stu­dents can also log on to the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s web­site.

Zukovsky said: “It is our com­mit­ment to help stu­dents and teach­ers be the best they can”, says Mr. Zukovsky, “hence we cre­ated Test­mas­ter to cor­rob­o­rate teach­ers’ ef­forts in pre­par­ing stu­dents for aca­demic suc­cess, en­hance stu­dents’ per­for­mance in SSCE and UTME ex­ams and en­sure that ev­ery stu­dent in Nige­ria max­i­mizes his or her true po­ten­tial.
