SUB-SAHARAN AFRICAN BRIEF HISTORY OF MATHEMATICS DEVELOPMENT AND SUB-SAHARAN ENERGY DIVERSIFICATION AND SUSTAINABILITY USING MATHEMATICAL TOOLS FOR ANALYSIS
This paper reviews a brief history of mathematics in some selected countries in the sub-Saharan African. Having considered the indispensability of mathematics towards the world’s technological and science development, the history takes a closer look at the students’ teacher ratio for effective teaching and learning. The paper also condemns in totality the rote learning system which is characterized by elementary school methods of memorization rather than critical analysis. It considers, the usefulness of mathematical tools in critical economic analysis of the Gross Domestics Products GDP of some selected countries in the sub-Saharan with the their energy diversification; Energy Mix Concentration Index (EMCI), to check the growth rates of the country involve. It was discovered that the GDP growth rate has negative correlation with energy diversification.
