ABSTRACT
This research work was carried out to examine gender performance in Business Mathematics at the NCE I Level in College of Education, Ikere Ekiti, Ekiti State, Nigeria. The study adopted an ex-post facto research design with a simple of 200 students that were selected from the population using simple random sampling techniques. Simple percentage and pie chart was used to analyze the response from the Questionnaire while t-test statistics was adopted Testing for the hypothesis raised in the study. It was revealed from the findings that students displayed a fair performance in business mathematics and that there was a significant difference between the performance of male and female students. It was recommended among others that entry requirement of students into business education department should be standardized so that only student with credit pass in mathematics be admitted into the department.

CHAPTER ONE
BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY
In all nations of the world including Nigeria science and mathematics are given first class attention due to numerous benefits derived from them (Ekeh, 2003). So the knowledge of mathematics to any course of study at the tertiary level of education is very important as it determines the level of study accounting inclusive.
It has been revealed by various studies
