Moreover, education polishes our mind, reinforces our thoughts, and strengthens our character and behaviors toward others. It equips us with information in various fields in general and our specialization in particular; especially what we need to master in our job career. Therefore, without education we may not survive properly nor have a decent profession. Furthermore, education grants us a good status in society. As educated people, we are considered as a valuable source of knowledge for our society. Having education helps us teach others morals, manners and ethics in our society. For this reason, people deal with us in a considerable and special way for being productive and resourceful. In addition, education makes us a role model in society when our people need us to guide them to the right way or when they want to take a decision.

Developing students' mathematical skills requires both procedure and reasoning. However, the declination of possessing these skills is still evident today. Hence, this study aimed to describe the students' procedural fluency in terms of accuracy, flexibility, and efficiency and written adaptive reasoning in terms of explanation and justification in solving open-ended problems. The study employed descriptive-correlational design through purposive sampling of thirty students from a National High School in Laguna, Philippines. The quantitative data revealed that in procedural fluency, students can quickly submit a complete solution leading to correct answer. However, they fail to provide two or more solutions in solving open-ended problems. The results also showed that students can clearly explain the problem but struggle to justify their solution. Moreover, procedural fluency is positively correlated to their adaptive reasoning. Consequently, students with an average level of mathematical achievement scored significantly higher than those at a low mathematical level in terms of flexibility. Pedagogical implications suggest that problem-solving activities for students should not solely focus on getting the correct procedures and answers. Further, it is recommended that teachers should expose students in open-ended problems and allow them to try and justify their own unique solutions irrespective of their mathematical achievement.

The relevance and significance of digitalization of the professional educational process are caused by the need to adapt the classical education and training system to completing the education in a pandemic COVID-19 crisis. The unexpected and unorganized closing of our nation‘s university buildings due to the COVID-19 pandemic forced teachers to face the most vibrating and fast modification of perhaps any profession in history. During digital learning, many students feel that they miss the operative collaboration and group working with partners to construct knowledge, wherein digital learning, both students and teachers have to forget about the human aspects, not because they are behind the screen. This chapter explores the issue of student engagement under the COVID-19 Pandemic and analyzes the lessons that can be applied to ongoing online education

Online Education during COVID19 Papadopoulou Argyri Smyrnaiou 2021 ISTES Modeling in mathematics and history as teaching and learning approaches to pandemics. In S. Jackowicz & I. Sahin (Eds.), Online Education during the COVID-19 Pandemic: Issues, Benefits, Challenges, and Strategies (pp. 405-433). ISTES Organization., 2021 Chapter Highlights  Applying an interdisciplinary lens, with a focus on pandemics, can help shape attitudes by means of inculcating the values of responsible global citizenship, and a high sense of personal and social responsibility. In the midst of the current lock-down due to COVID-19, a teaching approach to pandemics is presented, as an interdisciplinary connection between history and mathematics, based on the methodology of modeling in mathematics and the humanities.  The main research questions posed: a) can modeling, as analyzed in the scientific literature, be used to interpret pandemics, e.g. in the case of the ‗plague of Athens‘ (430 B.C.), as analyzed in the primary sources? b) Can the mathematical tools of statistical analysis be used to understand prevention measures through the centuries?  This chapter presents the assessment of the effectiveness of this approach, conducted by means of closed and open questionnaires, administered in two phases (pre- and postteaching) to a sample of 40 students aged 16-17 years.  The results highlight statistics as a key tool for understanding real-world situations, and record the strengthening of students‘ knowledge in history, the raising of their critical thinking skills, as well as their enhanced ability to tackle real-world problems and understand responsible decision-making processes.  The chapter suggests that such good practices can prepare students for the complexity of globalized knowledge. https://www.istes.org/books/c439edb6b376b840ce0300ad44b6a9c1.pdf

The percentage of girl child illiteracy is higher in girls than boys in Africa. This is particularly so in Nigeria. It is trite that Girl-child issues are generally confined within women’sright in Nigeria. As important as education isto life and humanity, it however falls under socio economic rights in Nigeria, which by virtue of the interpretation of constitutional provisions are argued as non-justiciable. Hence, accessing education for the girl child as a justice system or mechanism has been a challenge in the country. In recent times, some countries have directed public Interest litigation into fighting some socio-economic issues. This is a development which has not been practiced earlier and success is being recorded. It can be said that Public Interest litigation has been able to deal particularly with the challenge of locus standi which hasto do with the opportunity of accessing justice on some rights issues. Focusing on girl-child education in Nigeria, as a socio-economic rights issue to which access to justice is a challenge and to which legal strategic mechanism can bring a change is a positive one. The paper looks at the impact of African girl child illiteracy at this time in the global environment for sustainable development, the legal impediments to accessing justice on socio economic rights; recent legal mechanisms as best practices of getting socioeconomic rights enforced in some developed countries; innovative and emerging ways of its realization and enforcement in Nigeria. It proffers suggestions on legal and strategic litigation introduction or enhancement mechanism, the challenges if any and the gains more importantly of the public litigation procedure. The paper attempts a desktop and library-based approach in a comparative analysis of legal framework, policies on education, literature review of existing scholarship, case study on strategic litigation in some jurisdictions on socio economic rights and applies it to suggest Public Interest Litigation PIL for girl child education in Nigeria. The paper is germane for women’s right advancement, law and or policy reform and citizen empowerment in Nigeria and Africa at large.

Education is a critical factor in achieving social equality, including gender equality. For this reason, ensuring equality in the provision of education should not only be a social priority but something natural and obvious. This topic was the subject of considerable debate among scholars for many decades. The beginnings of the struggle for equality of women are based primarily on the battle for access to education, which was essential in this regard. Therefore the gender education gap is decreasing, and nowadays, contemporary rarely persists in educated countries. As a result of the struggle of feminists, today, women around the Globe are more educated than at any point in history. Nevertheless, the phenomena such as “gender inequality” or “gender gap” understood more broadly than education, are still relevant problems. Thereby, men are still more educated and privileged. The problem is not only the degree of accessibility to education but also its content. Yet, current gender inequality is the result of super imposed stereotypical patterns, as well as prejudices and discriminations embodied in the system. This article was written to introduce the issue of gender inequality in education. The given research problem in this study is as follows: where do gender inequalities in education become apparent? The aim of the study is to overview the current state of knowledge. Exploring this topic is crucial because this phenomenon has many negative consequences. This article aims to present the initial characteristics of the problem and draw attention to the issue. The method used is a literature review.

Understanding soil fertility status is crucial for fertilizer management and sustainable crop production. A study was conducted in the Malda district of West Bengal in 2019 to evaluate the nutrient status of surface soil. A total of 45 composite surface soil samples were collected at a depth of 15 cm, and the actual location of the sampling sites was detected by GPS. The soil fertility parameters such as soil pH, available nitrogen (N), available phosphorus (P), available potassium (K), organic carbon (OC), electrical conductivity (EC), available boron (B), available zinc (Zn), available iron (Fe), available manganese (Mn), available copper (Cu), and available sulfur (S) were analyzed and categorized as low, medium, and high using nutrient index (NI). The spatial distribution of parameters was mapped by inverse distance weighted (IDW) interpolation method. The coefficient of variation (CV) showed that P, K, EC, B, and Cu were highly heterogeneous (CV > 33%). The soil pH reveals that most of the surface soil samples of the study area are neutral and slightly acidic. Available phosphorus, potassium, iron, manganese, and sulfur are more or less satisfactory, whereas widespread deficiencies were observed for nitrogen (54.25%), organic carbon (65.76%), boron (100%), zinc (64.31%), and copper (7.5%) in the study area. More precisely, multinutrient deficiencies were observed in Barind region of the study area that noticeably influenced the productivity of crops.
