Students’ perception and performance across ability levels on GeoGebra software usage in learning of circle geometry


Author(s): Charles-Ogan Gladys Ibibo and Gamage Tubona

Abstract: This study investigated Students’ Perception and Performance across ability levels on GeoGebra Software usage in Learning of Circle Geometry. The study was guided by two research questions and two null hypotheses which were tested at .05 alpha level. Descriptive and quasi-experimental research design was used. A sample of 64 senior secondary two students was selected from a population of 25,913 from the 33 public schools in Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa State. The purposive sampling technique was employed to select the sample. The instrument used for the collection of data was Geometry Performance Test (GPT) and Students Perception on GeoGebra Software (SPGS). A reliability index of 0.82 and 0.63 was established for GPT and SPGS using the test-retest Cronbach methods respectively. The mean, standard deviation, t-test and analysis of covariance were used to analyse the data. The result showed that students had a positive perception on the use of GeoGebra software for the teaching and learning of circle geometry and there was no significant difference between the perception of the male and female students on the use of GeoGebra software for the teaching and learning of circle geometry. The result also revealed that students of all ability levels benefitted from the use of GeoGebra software in the teaching and learning of circle geometry. It was concluded that the use of GeoGebra software to teach circle geometry improved students’ performance of all ability levels and students have a positive perception of the use of GeoGebra software.
