Primary Syllabus

 

 

INTRODUCTION

Mathematics equips the learner with knowledge and skills which assist in developing logical thinking, ability to apply the knowledge acquired, analyse situations and make rational decisions.

This syllabus is designed to meet the general objectives of teaching Mathematics in the primary schools. For each specific objective, there is corresponding content. These objectives will guide the teacher in the development of lesson objectives. In order to achieve the objectives of the syllabus, it is expected that concepts and skills will be developed practically.

The syllabus is presented in form of topics which are developed in such a way that the knowledge and skills acquired at one level become a prerequisite for the next level.

Teachers should ensure that related topics are covered in the same order as given in the syllabus. They are also encouraged to make use of locally available materials. In some -content areas, there are “notes” meant to enhance clarity.

The syllabus has suggested methods of assessment which teachers will find useful in establishing whether the set objectives have been achieved.

ASSESSMENT

There is need to continually assess pupils’ performance in order to find out whether the objectives of the course are being achieved. This assessment will also help the teacher in finding out which pupils need further guidance in some areas and thus organize remedial work for the weak pupils and extra work for the bright pupils. The three methods suggested below will be found useful for this type of assessment.

Written Exercises

In almost every mathematics lesson, pupils do written exercises. While marking these exercises, teachers should give credit for each correct step in the working in addition to the correct answer. Pupils should therefore be encouraged to show all the working and check on the accuracy of the answers by using reverse operation(s). It is important that pupils are taught how to organize their work logically. At the end of the topic/subtopic, teachers should give a diagnostic test. When assessing mastery of mathematical facts using written exercises, steps in the working may not be required.

b) Oral Exercises

These exercises are administered throughout the lesson. They involve giving responses orally.

2. Knowledge of specific mathematical
  facts.
3. Understanding of general
  mathematical principles.
4. Application of general mathematical
  principles.
5. Interpretation of information
  contained in charts, graphs and
  tables.

Note

The aspect(s) to be tested will depend on the content and the level of the learner.

EXAMINATION

At the end of the course, pupils will sit for the national examination - The Kenya Certificate of Primarj' Education (K.C.P.E). This examination tests whether the objectives of the syllabus, have been achieved.

c) Observation

When pupils are doing a practical activity such as measurement, construction, modelling and pattern making, the teacher should observe whether they are using the appropriate skills. When giving a mark for the finished work, the teacher should take into account how the pupil was performing the activity, whether the pupil understood the skills being learned and whether the finished product is what was expected.

Competencies to be tested

Teachers are advised to take into consideration the following aspects of le-ning when assessing the pupils work.

knowledge of common mathematical concepts such as perpendicular, divisor, LCM.

INTRODUCTION

GUIDING THEMES OF THE SYLLABUS

There are three major themes for each year of this syllabus;

4.    God’s revelation of Himself through the child’s experience

5.    The child’s response to God in faith and love in his/her everyday life

6.    The development of the child’s relationship with other people and with God

These three themes emphasize the belief that it is God who initiates faith by revealing Himself to human beings; that they are free to respond to God’s self-revelation, and that if they so respond then the development of their faith will lead to a deeper relationship with God and others.

For each unit the following terms are used:

Theme:    The major idea.

Sub-theme: The specific part of the theme to be covered in the unit Objective(s); What the learner will be able to achieve cognitively.

Attitude/value: What the affective/personal response of the learner might be.

Content:    Brief definition of the sub-theme.

TERM 1:    God’s revelation of Himself through the child’s experience:

7.    Creation

15.    Christmas

Note; In lower primary the sub-theme Christmas takes the place of Easter in term 1 and Easter takes the place of Christmas in term 111.

The framework of the syllabus is planned in such a way that the same major themes are presented in every class. Each of the major themes is divided into sub-themes which are explored in various units. These imits are ftirther broken down into lessons. However, in each successive class, the themes are explored in more details.
