The day is set aside to create awareness of the importance and use of Mathematics in everyday life.

In a statement, the Accra Metro Director of Education, Stephen Abamfo, said students are to mark the day with Mathematics activities.

“On this day, pre-schools learners (Primary One to senior high school (SHS Three) are engaged with Mathematics activities to earmark and celebrate the day,” he said.

The letter was addressed to all circuit supervisors to ensure that the day is observed in their schools, adding that this year’s event is themed: “The Role of Mathematics in Ghana Beyond Aid”.

“Images and pictures on celebration activities should be sent to Vivian via WhatsApp ... and reports officially forwarded to my outfit on Monday, February 17, 2020, for onward submission,” the letter added.
