Optimization problem with application

Akinwande, M. B. O., Shofoluwe, A. S.

Abstract


Optimization problem arises because the resources that are available have varying degree of efficiency for performing different activities. The main objective of this paper is to improve the performance of first year students in their various courses at Lagos State University (LASU). We set to achieve this by assigning each of the first year courses to final year students (as Tutorial Teachers) on the basis of one course per Tutorial Teacher in order to obtain maximum performance. The scores obtained in each of the courses by the Tutorial Teachers would be used as the effectiveness of assigning the courses to them.
