Centre trains over 100 students in mathematical modeling

By Jacinta Nwachukwu

The National Mathematical Center (NMC) claims to have trained more than 100 postgraduate students in mathematical modeling as part of efforts to promote high-level research in the mathematical sciences.

Professor Promise Mebine, director / CEO of the Center, told the Nigeria News Agency in Abuja that the Foundation’s “postgraduate training in mathematical modeling would help address many real world problems.”

According to Mebine, modeling is a process that uses mathematics to represent, analyze, and make predictions in order to provide insight into real-world phenomena.

“While non-mathematicians will wonder what mathematics is for, we (mathematicians) will ask what we cannot understand with mathematics.

“This particular training marks an important chapter in the study of mathematical modeling in the country.

“I have no doubt that with the caliber of resource people involved in the five-day training, there is hope for the future of mathematics in Nigeria.

“These young brains who joined the training from different parts of the country will always remember this period. “

He therefore urged participants to continue leveraging online platforms to advance their studies.

The director also congratulated the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, for his unwavering love and interest in the development of mathematics and mathematical sciences in the country.

He said that “knowledge of mathematical modeling is very important if we are to use our mathematics to solve real world problems.

“The importance of training can never be overstated,” he said.

He further stressed that the main challenge of the Center was funding, saying that the Center, as part of its efforts to fulfill the mandate of promoting high-level research in mathematical sciences, organizes postgraduate courses of the Foundation.

“It also runs research-oriented courses, a national math competition for college students, and a symposium.”

Mebine called on motivated organizations to sponsor the Centre’s activities.

Also speaking to, Dr James Ajie, the program coordinator, noted that the training was meant to be for teachers and academics who had not yet obtained a doctorate.

“But PhDs who are interested in mathematical modeling have also participated.”

Ajie further said the training was conducted virtually in order to adhere to non-pharmaceutical COVID-19 protocols. (www.)
