Comprehensive Secondary Mathematics is the first in a series of four textbooks designed and authored to cover the revised secondary school mathematics syllabus in Kenya. The series is also tailored to adequately prepare candidates for the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examination (KCSE). Efforts have been made to encourage reasoning through problem solving approach and to stimulate learner's interest through mathematical activities making learning more self-motivating. The authors seek to emphasise the value of planned activities for effective problem solving to enhance quality understanding of basic mathematical concepts. The authors are secondary school mathematics teachers with long-standing experience in mathematics curriculum design, development, implementation and evaluation. Their invaluable experience in teaching secondary mathematics, training mathematics teachers and their participatory role in national examinations is naturally manifested in their interpretation of the revised syllabus in each of the books in this series.
