COMPARATIVE EFFECTS OF TUTORIAL AND DRILL COMPUTER-AIDED INSTRUCTION ON SENIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS’ ACHIEVEMENT IN GEOMETRY AND TRIGONOMETRY

Taraba State University (NIGERIA)
The study examined the influence Tutorial Computer-Aided Instruction (CAI) in collaboration with conventional teaching method would have on male and female secondary school students’ geometry and trigonometry achievement. A sample of 173 students made up of 125 boys and 48 girls drawn from two federal unity secondary schools in North-east geopolitical zone of Nigeria was investigated. The sample was divided into two groups the experimental and control. The two groups were taught geometry and trigonometry for six weeks using conventional instruction for the control group and supplement of Tutorial-CAI programmed packages for the experimental group. Pre-test and Post-test were administered to all the research subjects before and after the experiment respectively to determine differences in achievement if any, between the two groups and between the genders in the experimental group. After data analysis using means and Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) statistics, the findings showed that: (i) Tutorial-CAI produced higher geometry and trigonometry achievement in students than the conventional instruction (ii) with Tutorial CAI, girls performed better than boys. It was recommended among others that Government and well-meaning individuals and corporate organizations should make provision for the introduction, implementation and funding of Tutorial CAI in mathematics in Nigerian schools to remedy the current students’ dismal achievement level in the subject.
