Abstract

This study examines on a content basis, relationships among the chemistry and mathematics curricula for senior secondary schools. Seventeen chemistry teachers who have been teaching chemistry examined the chemistry concepts that require mathematical process skills in the Nigeria Senior Secondary School Mathematics Curriculum. Pearson Product-Moment Correlation Coefficient indicates significant relationships between the students’ performances in chemistry and mathematics in the senior secondary school certificate examination. Further analyses indicate a strong relationship between the students’ performances in chemistry in the senior secondary school certificate examinations and their chemistry teachers’ mathematical backgrounds. It was concluded that the senior secondary school mathematics curriculum is definitely beneficial for chemistry students.
