## Abstract

The study investigated the effects of two modes of Computer Aided Instruction in Mathematics (CAIM) on students’ achievement and interest in Mathematics. A non-equivalent quasiexperimental research design was adopted in the study. Specifically, the study adopted pre-test posttest control group design. The study was carried out in Enugu Education zone using a random sample of 250 senior secondary school two (SSS2) students. Two groups were taught using Computer Aided Instruction in Mathematics; the treatment group was taught using drill and practice method and the control group were taught using tutorial method. The study was guided by four research questions and four null hypotheses tested at 0.05 level of significance. Data for the achievement in mathematics were collected using Statistics and Probability Achievement Test (SPAT) while data on interest were collected using Statistics and Probability Interest Inventory (SPII). Research questions were answered using mean and standard deviation while hypotheses were tested using analysis of co-variance (ANCOVA). The findings reviewed that students performed better as well as show more interest in solving mathematics problems when the drill and practice method of Computer Aided Instruction in Mathematics (CAIM) was used then when the tutorial approach was used. Again, the finding revealed that practicing at the computer terminals stimulate students more and helps them retain what they learnt longer, among other issues. It was recommended that government should organize mass computer literacy programme for secondary school mathematics teachers as well as providing adequate number of computers to schools for effective mathematics instruction with computers.
