Effects of Computer-Based Integrated Learning System on the Teaching of Mathematics at Higher secondary Level in Pakistan

Sher Ali Khan, Dr. Muhammad Rauf


The purpose of this experimental research is to determine the effectiveness of computer-based integrated learning system on the teaching of Mathematics at a higher secondary level in Pakistan. The objectives of the study were to measure the academic achievement of students in Mathematics by teaching through the traditional method, measure the academic achievement of students using the computer-based integrated learning system in Mathematics, and compare the effectiveness of computer-based integrated learning system and traditional method in term of academic achievement of the higher secondary schools’ students in Mathematics. All the Students of F.Sc Pre-Engineering in G.H.S.S of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa constituted the population of the study. One Govt. Higher Secondary School was conveniently taken from the population as a sample. Students were divided into experimental group and control group randomly containing 25 students in each group. Pretest, post-test control group design was used in this study. The pre-test score was recorded before the treatment and the post-test score after six weeks of treatment. The collected data were tabulated, analyzed, and interpreted with SPSS. For analysis of the result, a t-test was used. The study concluded from the analysis that a computer-based integrated learning system was more effective as compared to the traditional method of teaching Mathematics. The study recommended that a computer based integrated learning system should be adopted in the existing system of teaching Mathematics to increase the interest and motivation of students and decrease the anxiety of Mathematics.
