    Abstract

    The current moves by many African countries including Kenya to reform their mathematics education to adopt learner-centred pedagogies presents a need to fill the knowledge gap on learner-textbook relationships there. The mathematics textbook remains a key resource for teaching and learning and is increasingly being expected to play a pedagogical role in addition to making the national curriculums manifest to both teachers and students. In Kenya, the textbooks published by the state-owned company are regarded as core and occupy a central role in mathematics teaching. We present findings on the perceptions of students at three Kenyan public secondary schools on what they value in textbooks and what they find lacking in their core text in their efforts towards engagement with mathematics through self-regulated learning. Implications for practice are presented.
