Kenyan Mathematics is ready for change and positive instances of innovation are already commonplace. Isolated initiatives often do not reach their potential but we believe that it is possible to create a culture of change within Kenya through coordinated initiatives at all academic levels. If such a culture of change is created it might be possible to achieve the radical change that is needed to popularise mathematics and prepare people for the technological world they are living in. This is a world where excess of data is more of a problem than lack of data so the skills of logical thinking and numeracy are more important than ever.

If such a culture of change could be created in Kenya we believe that this could have substantial implications for Kenya’s development and that lessons learnt from the changes could have a much broader application than the Kenyan context.
