THE PREDICTIVE EFFECTS OF TEACHING METHODS ON STUDENTS’ ACHIEVEMENT IN MATHEMATICS

Abiodun Taiwo Oluwadayo

Abstract


This study looked into how different teaching strategies affected students' mathematics achievement. The study uses a survey-based descriptive research design. The respondents were chosen using a Simple Random Sampling Technique. Three hundred (300) respondents constitute the sample, including 142 male and 158 female. The study was guided by three research questions. The Teaching Method Questionnaire (TMQ, r =0.72) and the Mathematics Achievement Test (MAT, r =0.80) are the two instruments utilized to gather data. Pearson Product Moment Correlation (PPMC) and Multiple Regression Analysis (MRA) were used to analyze the data at a significance level of 0.05. According to the study's findings, there is a strong correlation between teaching strategies and students' mathematics achievement. The study also showed that each teaching method considerably contribute to students' achievement in mathematics. It was suggested, among other things, that teachers be urged to employ effective teaching techniques in the classroom.
