Effect of classroom environment on academic performance In mathematics of preschool children in pioneer zone, Uasin Gishu County, Kenya
This is a research project on the effect of classroom environment on mathematics performance of preschool children within pioneer zone, Uasin Gishu County, Eldoret. Classroom environment influences the performance of mathematics among preschool children. It affects the children socially, physically, emotionally and mentally. Poor performance in mathematics is contributed mainly by the government's reluctance in contributing towards the development of early childhood education in Kenya, particularly in the constructions of recommended sized classrooms and provision of inspection and quality service. In carrying out her study the researcher used the survey design method to gather data required to perform the research project. This method is appropriate since it uses a representative sample of the targeted population since everybody in the population may not be accessed. The research findings established that pupil's text book ratio and the classroom size were the major contributors to poor performance in mathematics within pioneer zone.
