Abstract:
Education is good, but good education is an asset of inestimatable value. It is in the light of this fact that this paper is put together to appraise some technical terminologies/terms inappropriately expressed, used in text and taught at Basic Education and Secondary Education as well as many tertiary institution levels within and outside of Nigeria. Some examples of the terms are tools, implements, equipments, simple machines, machines, engine/motor, sources of power for farm works, sources of energy, technical work, farm/agricultural work, machinery, etc. In view of the fact that the Basic Education level is very crucial in the moulding of the knowledge of the citizens, it becomes necessary and greatly expedient to ensure that only appropriate instructions are given out. Hopefully, this paper shall be a contribution to intellectual discourse. However, the focus is on simple machines and sources of power for farm works. It is an original scholarly review work which ends by proposing the drawing of attentions of the various authors, publishers, teachers at all levels of Science and Technology learning/study and government education management agencies, etc. to the facts, with the view to making necessary adjustments.
