Classroom Interaction Patterns and Students Learning Outcomes in Secondary School Mathematics in Kenya

Dorcas Katiambo [5] | Stanley N Mutsotso [2] | Duncan W Wasike [2]

Abstract: Dismal performance in mathematics continue to persist in all levels of basic and secondary learning institutions yet performance and attainment in this subject is deemed crucial for students’ admission to scientific and technological professions in higher institutions of learning in Kenya. This is despite the continued efforts made by the government to increase performance in this subject such as introduction of the Strengthening of mathematics and sciences in secondary education project. Knowledge on the effect of classroom interaction patterns on learning outcomes in mathematics is scanty and undocumented. The purpose of this study therefore was to establish the relationship between the Classroom Interaction Patterns (CIPs) used and the students’ learning outcomes in secondary school mathematics in Mt. Elgon Sub-County. To achieve this objective, a quasi-experimental design was employed. A sample of 450 learners from 10 secondary schools and 10 teachers of mathematics were used in the study. Data was analysed using both descriptive and inferential statistics. Inferential statistics encompassed use of Pearson Product Moment Correlation and t-tests. Results showed that classroom interaction patterns significantly (P
