Abstract

In this paper, we discuss about the education system of secondary level mathematics in Nepal. We also discuss the situation on the basis of teaching and learning process in Nepal. Not only referring to the existing situation, we also discuss about the problems faced which is hindering the students from proper mathematical knowledge. We also highlight on influence on curriculum on mathematical skill of students. We also focus on lack of application of theoretical education practically. At the end, we also discuss about the possible solutions of the problems.
