1. Rationale
The rationale of teaching Basic mathematics is that it plays the role of filling up gaps that the student teacher could be having from secondary school mathematics. For instance, a lack of a proper grasp of the real number system and elementary functions etc. It also serves as the launching pad to University Mathematics by introducing the learner to the science of reasoning called logic and other related topics.
