The Mathematics Department at Kapsabet High School is renowned for its exceptional performance in national exams, and it has produced some of the top-performing students in the country.
The annual mathematics contest is one of the ways in which the school aims to nurture and encourage students’ interest in the subject.
Maths is an essential subject in any education system, and its importance cannot be overstated. Mathematics helps students develop critical thinking skills, logical reasoning, and problem-solving abilities.
It is a subject that is fundamental to many other fields of study, such as science, engineering, economics, and finance.
Despite its importance, Mathematics is a subject that many students struggle with, and it is often viewed as a daunting and challenging subject.
This is why events such as the annual mathematics contest at Kapsabet High School are critical in nurturing students’ interest in the subject and improving their performance.
