The field of technology and professional education requires a strong foundation consisting the sound background, knowledge of subject and pre-requisite of studying science and technology. As technology develops and reaches more and more into all levels of industry and commerce, more mathematics and science will be needed at all these levels. The utilitarian value of mathematics and science as man develops his technology indecorous/improper of master of environment does not need further emphasis than had been made before. Mathematics knowledge and skill through hands on and minds on activities to a constructive learning environment. Birgen (2004) states that despite the explosion of trained teachers in the last decades, the outcry on the poor performance in mathematics and sciences have persisted years in and year out. This finding is in agreement with the country’s’ situation where there has been public outcry over the dismal students’ performance in sciences and mathematics at secondary school level over the years as reflected by Uganda National Examination Board (IJNEB) since 1980 to date. Njuguna (1998) notes that it had already been observed the schools in Africa had failed to adequately provide the needed scientific and technological manpower for development. The failure of these subjects has however continued to be reported in 0-Level national examinations.
