CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1   Background of the Study

Education by and large is viewed as the string broad to accelerated social mobility as well as the socio-economic growth and development of the society.  Indeed, Nsofor (2022) opines that every nation in the world regardless of its state of development use education to pursue their development objectives by way of moulding the citizenry in skills, attitudes and vision. As a result, no meaningful national development can take place without education (Nkang, 2023).

 

STUDENTS CHARACTERISTICS AND THE LEARNING OF CHEMISTRY IN SECONDARY SCHOOLS

Therefore, every nation accords education some priority attention since education can generate in the citizenry attitudes that are favourable to modernization, industrial, growth, democratic ideas and the rise of the patriotic feelings.

Therefore, this contention informed the Nigerian state in her national policy on education to adopt education as an instrument per excellence for effective National Development (Federal Republic of Nigeria 2014).

Unfortunately over the last couple of years there had been this hue and cry over the poor academic performance of students at all levels in Nigeria Schools (Ekanem, 2018). Furthermore, some scholars have stated some reasons for this which include learners’ commitments and dedication to education, the non-Challant attitudes of parents, government poor funding of schools, lack of dedication on the part of teachers (Robbert 2015). Therefore, this study aimed to examine students’ characteristics and the learning of chemistry in secondary schools.

  

 

1.2   Statement of the Problem

Without reservation, education is supposed to equip the individual with the knowledge; skill, aptitudes, value and attitudes to enable him or her live a life of functionality and self-reliance on our modern complex society.

However, over the years, the poor academic performance of students in public examinations have been seen to be caused by inadequate physical facilities, earners attitudes to education poor management and administration and poor funding of schools, etc. These reasons can also be attributed for the poor earning of chemistry in our educational institutions. Therefore, this study aimed to examine students’ characteristics and the learning of chemistry in secondary schools.

  

1.3   Objective of the Study

Generally, the study was conducted to find out students’ characteristics and the learning of chemistry in secondary schools. Specifically, the study sought to:   

(1)    Find out the characteristics which can be favourable to the students’ and teacher’s active participation in the learning of chemistry.

(2)    Find out characteristics which influence the students towards the learning of chemistry.

(3)    Find out the possible causes that brought about poor characteristics between students and teachers and finding possible measures that will be used to eradicate these.

 

1.4   Significant of the Study

The finding of this study will help in the following ways:

(i)     Firstly, it will assist teachers in Onna Local Government to re-adjust their teaching strategies.

(ii)    Secondly, the findings will be useful to the school administrators, parents and guardians.

(iii)    The counselor will find it useful helping his client when problem arises in chemistry.

(iv)   Lastly, it will be useful to the curriculum planners and developers in the areas of secondary education syllabus in chemistry.

 

1.5   Research Hypotheses

(i)     There is no significant difference between performance of student in chemistry and their characteristics.

(ii)    There is no significant difference between student’s characteristics and its effect on the learning of chemistry.

(iii)    There is no significant relationship in the learning of chemistry and student characteristics.

 

1.6   Research Questions

In the course of the research, the following questions were posed to guide the researcher:

(i)     Do students differ in their performance in chemistry where characteristics are favourable?

(ii)    Is there any difference between students characteristics and its effect on the learning of chemistry?

(iii)    How does teachers’ characteristic influences students’ willingness to learn chemistry?

 

Definition of Term

Chemistry: According to advance learners dictionary chemistry is defined as the scientific study of the structure of substance, how they react when combined or in contact with one another, and how they behave under different conditions.  

Learning: Is the process of studying something that is knowledge that you get from reading and studying.

Characteristics: In brief, a typical feature or quality that something or somebody has.

Student: In brief, a Person who is studying in the universities, colleges and secondary school.

Academic Performance: Refers to student’s ability or achievement of what he/she has learned to do as a result of prior exposure to a course of instruction.

 

Conclusion

In conclusion, the findings of the study have showed that student’s characteristic is the bedrock in the teaching of chemistry in secondary schools.

Therefore, based on this any chemistry agent that wants a greater academic performance of student in chemistry should endeavour to improve teachers economic background as this will help boost the performance of students.
