Mathematics Education in East Africa : Towards Harmonization and Enhancement of Education Quality
About this item
This book presents and discusses critically the content, process and outcomes of secondary mathematics education in the East Africa region. It looks specifically at the quality of secondary mathematics education in the East Africa region from the perspective of four main aspects: mathematics curriculum and syllabus in public secondary schools; teaching and learning in public secondary mathematics classrooms; achievement in mathematics; and mathematics teacher education.
In the increasingly global and technological world mathematics is seen as a significant gatekeeper of opportunities for social and economic advancement and mobility. Hence, countries and development agencies in the broader sub-Saharan Africa region are looking towards increasing access to relevant and high-quality secondary education as a lever towards economic development. Policy makers and other key decision makers in education are looking towards improvement in mathematics teaching and learning as a key focus in education reform. In the East Africa region also a number of initiatives have been taken at the national levels to improve the quality of mathematics education. This book provides an in-depth comparative analysis of the developments and issues in mathematics education in Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda and Uganda, and advances our understanding of the state of secondary mathematics education in East Africa.
