Abstract: Mathematics is a subject from which other sciences draw inspiration and substance. A sound background in Mathematics is a necessary condition for the study of sciences and science related subjects. Cumulative evidence point to the fact that the generality of pupils and teachers find mathematics uninteresting and pupils’ underachievement in mathematics is assuming unacceptable dimension. The problems of underachievement in mathematics and elusion of meaningful development in the field of Science and Technology are discussed while emphases are laid on the needed involvement of the Mathematical Association of Nigeria (MAN) for effective teaching and learning of primary school mathematics. Attempts are made at proffering solutions to underachievement in mathematics at the primary school level especially in the U.B.E. dispensation.
