Abstract: In this paper, we estimate the true proportion of

mathematics educators and teachers at undergraduate / post graduate

level in Karachi, Pakistan making Math courses interesting. We use

random sampling of 75 students of engineering and commerce studying

in three different institutes/universities namely University of

Karachi, Usman Institute of Technology (UIT) and Karachi institute

of Economics & Technology (PAF-KIET). For developing a 95%

confidence interval to estimate this true population proportion, we

use normal distribution. Furthermore, we investigate with the help

of students’ responses obtained from the sample data how mathematics

teachers at undergraduate/post graduate level make their courses

interesting – by their dedication, by giving logical reasoning and

concrete examples or by making complex mathematical methods

accessible to students giving them know-how of mathematical

software.
