The tertiary level is the training point of teachers who will dispense mathematical knowledge to students at these lower levels. This paper examines the prevailing conditions of mathematics at tertiary level and profers suggestions as to what can be done to ensure qualitative mathematical education at tertiary level which will in turn affect the lower levels as well as pave way for sound scientific and technological development and achievementof the desired goals and objectives for the year 2010
