The Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) has released the Seventh Edition of the Elementary Mathematical Tables.
This latest Edition is approved by the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD). The publication is an essential tool in supporting curriculum in Mathematics, Sciences, and for examination purposes.
According to the council, this edition is improved both in content and presentation to enhance precision in Mathematics and Science calculations. The content is restricted to the essential tables that are relevant for KNEC examinations.
Furthermore, some formulae, Standard International Units (SI Units) and physical constants relevant to Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry have also been included.
To mitigate against sale of counterfeit by unscrupulous traders, additional security features have been added. Fake mathematical tables have inaccurate content which is misleading to the students.
The Seventh Edition is printed and distributed by the Kenya Literature Bureau (KLB), a State Corporation under the Ministry of Education and is available in bookshops countrywide.
In a statement, KNEC CEO Dr. Mercy Karogo encouraged teachers to use the new edition.
She said: “I urge all teachers to use this new edition in teaching and administration of both internal and national examinations.”
