There has been a deteriorating academic performance in Mathematics in the region. When children join class one from pre-school they usually have some basics about numbers. It is from this stage where teachers in Secondary one start introducing new concepts to the learners as well as introducing new symbols used in mathematics at that level. Children in lower Secondary are in concrete operational stage, where child canreason logically about concrete events and classify objects into different sets. Therefore they require a lot of materials to manipulate as well as play with. Leaming will take place in young children at this stage when they are interested, therefore they need ton be involved in their learning, whereby most of their senses are involved. But this is not always the case with most schools as most materials are costly therefore most materials are missing and if they are available they are not convenient to the children learning. Also teachers have not bothered to improvise, locally available materials. This has greatly affected the foundation of mathematics right from lower classes. The problem has been passed from one class to another such that there has been no solution to the problem yet. The worst of it is that some teachers are permanently teaching lower classes such that they mess up and promote half baked children to the next class where another teacher is given a burden by his or her colleague, he or she will do the same thing eventually by the end of the year he or she promotes them to the next class with the same problem.
