Summary of last week but one mathematics revisions paper; True to his word days ago, he was, on Facebook, conducting a Math online revision class for this year’s KCSE candidates who are stuck at home as schools are closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
A first-class degree holder in Actuarial Science, Babu Owino was at home with differentiation. Actuarial Science applies mathematical and statistical methods to calculate risk in insurance, finance, and other sectors.
“Mathematics is the easiest subject on earth,” said the MP in his opening remarks while apologising to students who couldn’t access the internet and don’t have smartphones to access the lesson.
In the first minutes of the study, the young MP started tackling questions in differentiation, a topic that is normally a hard nut to crack for most students.
The hour-and-25 minutes’ lesson proceeded to tackle other topics such as calculus, integration, and trigonometry.
The young parliamentarian’s choice in teaching mathematics on Labour Day was not foolhardy but one of a man taking a path he has mastered.
Babu Owino did his form four examinations in Kisumu Boys and scored an A-minus of 79 points. He would later do actuarial science at the University of Nairobi where he graduated with a first-class honors degree in 2012.
Over the recent weeks, the Embakasi East MP has taken a critical stand on the need for KCPE and KCSE students to be tested only on what has been covered in the syllabus.
Babu owino this Friday 15/5/2020 will be taking KCSE candidates on a mathematics paper.
