(Kenyatta University, 1987)

Tele, Albert Kimtai
(Kenyatta University, 2014)
Despite numerous interventions and action plans, very little evidence exists on why the infant and child mortality rates are increasing in Kenya. Most studies have focused on infant and child mortality putting neonatal ...

Mirasi, Tom Benard Mboya
(Kenyatta University, 2014)
Globally in 2010, about 800 women died daily due to complications of pregnancy and child birth (WHO, 2010). Out of the 800 deaths, 440 deaths occurred in subSaharan Africa, 230 in Southern Asia and only five in highincome ...

Kiplimo, Richard Kibet
(20140908)
Tuberculosis is a leading cause of mortality and morbidity globally. Kenya is among the 22 high burden countries that contribute 80% of the global burden and is ranked number 15 worldwide while in Africa, it is ranked ...

Owiti, Jackson Onyango
(20140820)
In malaria endemic areas, fever is commonly caused by malaria infection but it may be a manifestation of several childhood diseases for example bacterial and viral illnesses. Malaria microscopy is the gold standard for ...

Otwombe, N. K.
(2000)
Consider the problem of r .~/ randomly distributed points in a unit nball and the convex hull created by these points. Let ~II be r! times the rcontent of an rsimplex whose P vertices are in the interior and r I / p ...

Awour, Kennedy Otieno
(20130320)
This study assesses the performance of three numerical turbulence models; k  8,
k  0) and k  0)  SST in predicting heat transfer due to natural convection inside an
air filled cavity. The heat transfer due to natural ...

Njoroge, Benson
(20121101)
The purpose of this study was to establish the relationship between mathematical language and students' performance in mathematics. In addition to the main purpose, the study sought to find the problems experienced by ...

Kiswili, Patrick Muoki
(20120608)
The objectives of this research were to establish the nature of the mathematical concepts that find application in other subjects studied in secondary schools, the effects this applied mathematics has on the elarning and ...

Tumbo, Martin E. Maundu
(20120518)
This study investigated the attitudes of preservice teachers towards mathematics in some primary teachers' colleges. The study examined the attitudes of the trainees based on a number of variables which included sex of ...

Masare, George
(20120518)
Performance in Mathematics has been the poorest amongst the other subjects at the kenya certificate of primary examination. The poor performance indicates that pupils among other things are not were prepared in mathematics ...

Oduor, Shem Richard
(20120516)
In this project, two theorems in (6) on controllability of autonomous systems defined with the help of ordinary Differential Equations (ODE) in finite dimensional vector spaces is genralized to infinite dimensional locally ...

Muthama, Paul Nguku
(20120504)
It is important that a consumer gets the quality of a product she/he wants. As a consequence, the quality of a finished product should be controlled to a desire level. This is done through statistical quality control.We ...

Ombui, Thomas Mageto
(20120420)
We consider analysis and fitting models of the regression data in the fields, which exhibit nonconstant variances, which are referred to as regression models. We focus on various approaches and procedures used in estimating ...

Tobias, Mbithi Mwalili
(20120418)
Nonparametric regression is used here to estimate the finite population mean. The variance of the derived estimate is obtained and procedures for its estimation suggested. The appropriateness of the variance estimators is ...

Kihoro, John Mwaniki
(20120411)
In the past, Kenya's Tourist data has been analysed by among others, Mutiso (1982) who carried out Spectral Analysis to the monthly data for a series covering 10 years (19711980). Mutiso came up with general conclusion ...

Waweru, Peter Matheru
(20120411)
In the study of dose response curves, there are two main assumptions that are normally made. First, we assume that the dose response data can be modeled using linear models (linear probability models), and secondly we ...

Sigey, Johana Kibet
(20120403)
Equations governing natural convection have been solved using a fast and stable finite difference approximation, which has been developed and validated. The technique relies on using different false transient factors in ...

Stephen, P. M.
(20120228)
Statistical linear models are used to study dose response models in the bioassay. These have given rise to many statistical problems since the dose response data do not follow linear model. This has led to the use of ...
