This study explored how teachers use ICT in their teaching of numeracy concepts to children in lower grades. The study also examined factors that enhance or hinder teachers’ use of ICT in teaching numeracy skills. Literature reviewed revealed that there is generally poor performance in mathematics among pupils. This could be attributed to inadequate development of basic mathematics concepts in the lower grades. Findings from previous studies indicate that ICT has great potential in enhancing the teaching of mathematics. It was envisaged in this study that the findings would provide valuable insights that would help improve the teaching and learning of numeracy concepts through he use of ICT. An exploratory sequential mixed methods research design was employed to conduct the study in which quantitative data was initially collected in the first phase. Qualitative data was then collected in the second phase to explain the quantitative data. The study targeted all the teachers teaching in lower grades in both private and public primary schools in Mombasa County, Kenya. A sample of 40 primary schools was purposively selected based on the availability of ICT tools for instructional purposes. Three teachers teaching in lower grades (Grades 1, 2 & 3) were then selected from each school. In cases where there were more than three teachers teaching in lower grades in a school, simple random sampling technique was employed to select only three. The sample size selected comprised of 25% of all the lower primary schools in the county. Teacher Questionnaire (TQ), Teacher’s Interview Protocol (TIP) and Observation Protocol (OP) were used to collect data.
