Abstract

The purpose of the study was to ascertain the impact of lCT on teaching and learning of mathematics. Two research questions and two hypotheses were posed to guide the study. A descriptive survey design was adopted in the study. A sample size of 122 respondents made up of 17 mathematics teachers and 105 mathematics. Students were drawn using stratified
random sampling techniques from six senior secondary schools in Enugu Education zone. Classified by gender, the sample was made up of 51 males and 71females The instrument
used for data collection was a 12 item questionnaire. The instrument hadface validity and a reliability coefficient of .87 obtained using Cranach alpha's method. Mean statistics was used to answer the research questions while the hypotheses were tested at .05 significance level using Z- test statistics. The result of data analysis showed that: lCT as instructional materials has helped to a great extent in teaching and learning of mathematics. Also lCT has
promoted research by mathematics teachers and students. The respondents classified by gender, differed only on the extent to which lCT has promoted research by mathematics teachers and students. Major recommendation made in the study was that functional lCT facilities should be provided in secondary schools to promote teaching, learning and research in mathematics and other subjects.
