Abstract

Kaianjai zone is in Tigania District, Eastern province, Kenya. It has seven secondary schools, of which five are district schools and two provincial boarding schools. District schools are those schools that admit students from the district only. Provincial boarding schools are those that admit students from allover the province. Among the district schools, two are day schools,that is schools, where students do not board in the school. In all these schools. Mathematics is a compulsory subject. The performance in the subject in the whole zone is very poor. In fact in most schools especially the district school over 75 percent of the students score D and below. The head teachers have tried to put more resources towards mathematics for better results in the subject. This is through having continuous assessments every week, extra tuition and remedial work, organizing zonal discussions and district contests. The best students are also rewarded accordingly. Despite of all this effort much has not been achieved. Teachers have also been sponsored to attend SMASSE which is a training for strengthening mathematics and science in secondary education.
