Department of Mathematics and ICT is one of the six departments in the college. The mission of the department involves a practical approach to mathematics/ICT and engages our students in exploring ways of using this approach to teaching in the Kindergarten, Primary and the Junior High School. By the end of the course we expect our students to demonstrate sound knowledge and understanding of all the topics in the K.G, Primary and Junior High school mathematics curriculum and apply them in real life situations. Students will be equipped with the best and appropriate methodology and Pedagogy of teaching mathematics at the KG and basic level.

Bia Lamplighter College of Education was started by the Church of Christ as an evolving cutting-edge center for teacher in-service training in the Bia West District in the Western North Region. This effort has been
complimented and enhanced by the Government of Ghana through the absorption of this college along with four other new colleges of education as public institutions in 2015.
