Mathematics from past times has proved to be one of the difficult subject probably because it requires too much of reasoning and greater thinking capacities. As if that is not enough, the poor methods of presentation and unfriendly attitude of some teachers makes the situation to appear difficult such that mathematics continues to attract the interest of very few people and the percentage of females among them is very insignificant. Most of the students studying mathematics resulted to it because they had no otherwise by not being admitted to the course of their choice. Permutation and combination is one of the topics in Mathematics that pose problems to students. In this paper, we explain how permutation and combination could be taught using play way approach among other methods that could be used. At the same time in this paper a new method of generating permutations in a more orderly manner is developed.
