1.0 INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Financial accounting is the process of recording, classifying, selecting, measuring, interpreting, summarizing and reporting financial data of an organization to the users for objective assessment and decision making (Asaolu, 2002). It also involves the collection, recording, summarizing, analyzing and reporting in monetary terms, information about a business organization to users of such information.

Financial accounting is fundamentally a program that involves the acquisition, conservation and recording of business transactions. Financial accounting is one of the subjects offered in the senior secondary schools in Nigeria. They are the basic fundamentals which guides accountants in recording, appreciating and assessing accounting information as well as the preparation and interpretation of financial statements.

The accounting information system is proven, time honored and its format is universally understood. Books of accounts prepared by accountants in one part of the world are easily understood by their counterparts in other parts of the world, because the information system is based on principles that are widely accepted and globally used.

According to the National Examination Council (NECO, 2004), the objective of studying financial accounting at the senior secondary school includes the enablement of senior secondary school students to appreciate the basic rules, functions and principles of accounting. The subject also helps to lay proper foundation for further study of accounting and allied courses at higher level and to enable the students understand basic accounting principles, practice and their applications to modern business activities.

Agbobu (2007) viewed the importance of teaching accounting as to equip the learner with the means to earn his living, take care of himself, understand his rights and responsibilities and contribute his quota to the development of the community. Agobu (2007) further said that, it prepares the individual to adapt to his constantly changing society. Teachers can apply different methods such as conventional lecture, demonstrational method, project based method and so on can be used in teaching financial accounting. In classrooms around the world, teachers lecture, students take notes, and then students are tested on what they have learned (Agboola & Oloyede, 2007). Lecture method can also be delivered with educational technology like videos, audio tapes, slides, projectors and so on.
