Unemployment remains one of the critical problems facing every nation today including Nigeria it is argued that curriculum implementers have not give sufficient attention to mathematics teaching and learning which is believed to provide solution to the nagging problem Mathematics is’ very impoi1tant in many ways especially in the intellectual development of individual and entrepreneurial v/ails Economic growth and national development are the goals’ that most government wishes her citizenry; entrepreneurial education should therefore be encour9ged and supported to the highest levels This could only be done when the study of mathematics which provides the pre-requisite shills needed for entrepreneurship is given the support it deserves. The writers were of the view that government should design larger and more realistic program for job creation They opined that the acquisitions of entrepreneurial skills are the basic tool for molding employable individuals as they need skills to fin4 new jobs They looked at some of the aspects of mathematics needed for entrepreneurship which include Mathematical laboratory practical games and simulation binomial theorem algebra, regression analysis and so on. Recommendations were proffered such as encouraging mathematics teachers by organizing workshops and seminars to inculcate right type of skills’ for self-reliant jobs’ encouraging the teaching of entrepreneurship education in schools advocating problem based leaning and laboratory practical based learning in the teaching and learning of mathematics and so on
