The paper examines the relationship between efficient mathematics teaching and deficient required resources in district Panjgur, Balochistan. In today's world of highly enhanced fields, especially in science and technology, it is impossible to march on the road of success in the absence of resources, commitment, dedication, and the urge to seek knowledge without any cultural or theological influence. The purpose of the paper is to highlight the factors which are hampering effective mathematics teaching in the high schools of the research area. In addition, it discusses the reasons for the failure of mathematics teachers in arranging the mathematical activities in the high schools in district Panjgur. Education is the most important factor for the progress and prosperity of any nation. Mathematics as a subject fascinated the mind and sharped analytical skills and vital for success of students in their future accomplishments. It plays a significant role as a subject for creating human resource, which are essential for the progress of any nation. The study has underlined the aspects which hinder the rapid up-gradation of mathematics as a subject and the traditional limitations associated with remote areas in classroom teaching.
