Studies on language and its impact on the development of mathematics learners
(Strathmore University, 201908)Within the field of mathematics education, the central role language plays in the SBS learning, teaching, and doing of mathematics is increasingly recognized, but there has been no agreement about what this role or roles ... 
Stimulating and sustaining Interest of students in secondary school mathematics for improved achievement through teaching  learning software packages in developing countries
(Strathmore University, 201908)Stimulating and sustaining interest in the learning of a concept has become a key component of quality achievement in the concept. It is much gain saying that learning is meaningful with interest and the quality of ... 
Spectral properties of weighted composition semigroups on the Bloch space
(Strathmore University, 201908)We determine both the semigroup and spectral properties of a group of weighted SBS composition operators on the Little Bloch space. It turns out that these are strongly continuous groups of invertible isometries on the ... 
Selfefficacy and enjoyment for learning mathematics among lower secondary school students: differences, changes and causal relationships among first year students
(Strathmore University, 201908)The present longitudinal study was guided by the following research questions; (a) are there significant differences in students’ selfefficacy and enjoyment for learning maths with respect to their demographic ... 
Reproducing Kernels for hardy and Bergman spaces of the upper half plane
(Strathmore University, 201908)Using invertible isometries between Hardy and Bergman spaces of the unit disk D and the corresponding spaces of the upper half plane up, we determine explicitly the reproducing kernels for the Hardy and Bergman spaces ... 
Primary mathematics teacher education in a straitjacket in Kenya: venturing out towards realization of the national learning needs
(Strathmore University, 201908)This paper argues that one of the most critical aspects of primary mathematics teacher education that is missing at both training and classroom practice is a course design that allows both the college tutor educator and ... 
Persistency in the semisheaf of Hierarchical Systems
(Strathmore University, 201908)We show how a hierarchical, time indexed, categorical theory model can explain SBS brain activity through time from the model MENS. Given we need multiple time scales in the brain working simultaneously for experience ... 
Pedagogical content knowledge of mathematics educators and students achievement in Nairobi County
(Strathmore University, 201908)Pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) and content knowledge (CK) are key components of teacher competence that affect student progress. However, little is known about how tea£her education affects the development of CK and ... 
On the Eigenvalue problem involving the Robin p (x)Lap1acian
(Strathmore University, 201908)A nonlinear eigenvalue problem with Robin boundary conditions on a bounded domain is investigated. The existence of a sequence of nonnegative eigenvalues is established using the LjusternikShnirelmann principle. Using ... 
On Compactness of similarity orbits of normattainable, Operators
(Strathmore University, 201908)The notion of compactness plays an important role in analysis. It has been extensively discussed on both metric and topological spaces. Various properties of compactness have been proved under the underlying spaces. ... 
Norm properties of generalized derivations on norm ideals
(Strathmore University, 201908)We investigate the norm properties of a generalized derivation on a norm ideal J of B(H), the algebra of bounded linear operators on a Hilbert space H. Specifically, we extend the concept of Suniversality from the inner ... 
Metric equivalence as an almost similarity property
(Strathmore University, 201908)Various results that relate to almost similarity and other classes of operators such as isometry, normal, unitary and compact operators have been extensively discussed. In this paper, we describe the spectral picture of ... 
Mental Mathematics strategy: a necessary tool for enhancing upper basic education students achievement, and retention in numbers and numerations in Nigeria
(Strathmore University, 201908)This study examined the use of mental mathematics stratew as a necessary tool in enhancing students achievement and retention in upper basic education number and numeration in Oju and Otukpo local government areas of ... 
Mathematics in historic events  a pedagogical approach for meaning making
(Strathmore University, 201908)History is written evidence of problem solving strategies that have been used to generate solutions to local and global issues. Historical events are cast in decision that make a memorable impact on humanity. Each ... 
Groups of composition operators on Dirichlet spaces of the upper halfplane
(Strathmore University, 201908)Using the theory of similar semi groups, we undertake a complete analysis of groups SBS of composition operators on Dirichlet spaces. Specifically, we obtain both the semi group and spectral properties of groups of ... 
From smileys to Smiley coins using a crypto currency in education
(Strathmore University, 2017)This paper describes a crypto currency to reward students for their studies. The currency bears the apt name Smiley coin or SMLY and is used within the tutorweb online learning platform. In order to make the SMLY more ... 
Identifying important Mathematics underlying student thinking
(Strathmore University, 2017)Research in mathematics teacher education suggests the benefits of instructional practices that use student mathematical thinking (e.g., Fennema, et al., 1996; Stein & Lane, 1996), but such practices are complex and difficult ... 
Show me, don't tell me
(Strathmore University, 2017)We, as educators, have all been faced with the struggle of asking students to show their work on assessments. This is especially true when we either ask students to show using logic, a mathematical statement property, or ... 
Where are your equal signs?
(Strathmore University, 2017)The equal sign is a critical aspect in mathematics. Whether it is reaching an answer for an unknown, simplification of an expression using orders of operations, or when conducting a proof, the equal sign provides the ... 
Factors influencing students’ academic achievement in linear algebra
(Strathmore University, 2017)This study investigated the relationship between students’ year of study, gender and academic achievement in Linear algebra in a selected university in Kenya. One hundred and one 3rd and 4th year students were sampled for ...
