Today, we are spotlighting Mr. Abdoulie Ceesay - a Monitory and Evaluation Officer (M&E) at The Ministry of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology (MoHERST). Mr. Ceesay has successfully Co-Authored the book entitled ‘CORE MATHEMATICS For Senior Secondary Schools.

Mr. Ceesay is part of the Association of Gambian Authors for Schools, which is a Non-Profit Organization in the country. The Association is set to offer its members an equal opportunity and a platform to participate and benefit from the socio-economic development programs and activities of the association, with the quest to guarantee quality and relevant basic and secondary education, through the production of appropriate material text and suitable related services.

Notwithstanding, Mr. Ceesay is a Masters Degree holder in Business Administration from the University of The Gambia (UTG), with over a decade of teaching experience. In the Book ‘CORE MATHEMATICS For Senior Secondary Schools’, topics have been carefully arranged to suit the revised Mathematics syllabus for Senior Secondary Schools. Mr. Ceesay is optimistic that the book will go a long way in shaping the angle in which Gambian pupils perceive the mathematic subject.

“We have used practical components such as our currency (GMD), places, names, and many more other local characters that pupils in The Gambia are familiar with. Therefore, it will help students visualize Mathematic facts and concepts”, said Mr Ceesay.
