Abstract

The chapter examined the influence of globalization of mathematics contents, teaching methods, and resource materials in colleges of education in Oyo state. One hundred mathematics students—46 from Emmanuel Alayande College of Education and 54 from Federal College of Education (Special), Oy—were sampled for the study. Descriptive survey type of design was adopted for the study. Three questionnaires were used: influence of globalization on mathematics content questionnaire (IGMCQ, r= 0.87), influence of globalization on mathematics teaching methods (IGMTM r= 0.78), and influence of globalization on mathematics resource materials (IGMRM r= 0.89) scales. Three research hypotheses were tested in this study. The data were analyzed using frequency count, for descriptive statistics. Chi-square statistics was used to test the hypotheses. The results show that there is no significant association between globalization and mathematics contents, teaching methods, and resource materials.
