dc.description.abstractMathematics learning and aptitudes obtained through instruction system is of foremost significance for the daily advancement of an individual. Pupils ought to build up their numerical and spatial comprehension, and additionally their capacity to comprehend and utilize distinctive techniques for estimating frameworks. The study was concerned with the influence of using multimedia resources in teaching and learning measurement in Mathematics in public primary schools in Kipkelion sub-County, Kericho County-Kenya. The objectives of the study were to: (a) establish the use of multimedia resources in teaching and learning measurement in Mathematics; (b) to determine the influence of class size when using multimedia resources in teaching and learning measurement in Mathematics; (c) to establish the influence of teachers` perceptions on the use of multimedia resources in teaching and learning measurement in Mathematics; (d) to establish the influence of learners’ readiness for use of multimedia resources in teaching and learning measurement I n Mathematics. A descriptive research design was used in the study. The target population for the study was head teachers, Mathematics teachers and class six pupils in all the public primary schools within Kipkelion sub-county, Kericho County. The sub-county was stratified into two strata based on the two divisions. Ten percent (10%) of schools in each stratum were randomly selected for the study. Head teachers, Mathematics teachers and class six pupils were then purposively sampled for the study. The data collection instruments were a questionnaire, interview schedule and observation checklists. The instruments were piloted through the test-retest method and computed using Pearson’s product-moment correlation to check on reliability. The content validity of the instruments was determined by experts experienced in research. Quantitative data were analyzed with the assistance of SPSS computer software and presented using frequency Tables, bar graphs and pie charts. The qualitative data was narrated to give a summary of the findings. The study concluded that various multimedia resources were available and used by different schools in the County. The study established that 85% of the teachers reported that multimedia resources were not proportionate to the number of pupils. It was also established that 60% of the teachers participated in the selection of the multimedia resources although only a few used the resources. It was also concluded that the pupil-teacher ratio is high which influenced the use of multimedia resources in teaching measurement in Mathematics. The study further concluded that teachers’ perceptions of the use of multimedia resources were positive. However, teachers avoided the use of the resources because of class size and lack of enough time although they agreed that multimedia resources enhanced teaching and learning measurement in Mathematics. The study recommended the need for the Ministry of Education and the County Government to ensure that multimedia resources are proportionate to the number of learners. It was also recommended that there was a need for more deployment of teachers to ensure that the teacher-pupil ratio of 1:40 is met and the need to create awareness to teachers to ensure they teach learners utilizing multimedia resources.en_US
