Mathematics is very important to man because it is the foundation and the secret of the development of man and society. This was the submission of Master David Olaiya a contestant in the on-going Season 5 of the Cowbellpedia Secondary Schools Mathematics Television Quiz Show sponsored by Cowbell Milk, the flagship brand of Promasidor Nigeria Limited.

Olaiya, who flew the flag of Loyola Jesuit Memorial College, Port Harcourt, Rivers State, explained to journalists outside the studio in Lagos last weekend that Mathematics helps one to think analytically about the world around us and have better reasoning abilities.

“Analytical and reasoning skills are important because they help us solve problems and look for solutions. It contains the secrets of life and living which is very important in everyday life as it provides us to do the calculations easily and correctly”, he said.

In the senior category preliminary Group Contest last weekend, Olaiya alongside Miss Favour Williams of Loyola College, Abuja cross the borderline into the semi-final.

The feat by the duo left four of their colleague stranded and out of contention. These include BabakuraZanna of Elkanemi College, Maiduguri, Borno State; Paul Iginla from Divine Covenant Academy, Igbogene-Yenegoa, Bayelsa State; Goodness Olarewaju of the Incubators Secondary, Kaduna, Kaduna State and RilwanNajib of the Caliphate International School, Sokoto, Sokoto State

The junior category battle was not less exciting where Michael Enechizma, a student of Scholars Universal Secondary, Ota, Ogun State and Yakubu Yunusa of Nigerian Tulip International College, Yobe State emerged victoriously.

Enechizma, who scored 125 points after the two rounds to advance, prays for more grace and speed in the battle ahead so as to realise his ambition of emerging as the 2019 champion.

The organisers also promised that this year’s edition would be more educative and fun-filled as Cowbellpedia is committed to “nurturing great inventors”.
