Abstract:
The study investigated the enhancement of secondary school students’ achievement in geometry through experiential learning approach. The study was carried out in Owerri West Local Government Area of Imo State. The quasi experiment method adopting the pre-test post-test non equivalent control design was used to carry out the study. A sample of 233 senior secondary two (SS II) students from four purposively selected secondary schools was selected for the study. The data required for the study was collected through a 30-item researcher made objective test questions with reliability coefficient of 0.86 determined using Pearson’s product moment correlation formula. The control group was taught geometric concepts using conventional method while the experiment group was taught using the experiential learning approach. The data generated was analyzed using ANCOVA tested at 0.05 level of significance. The result of the study revealed that experiential learning approach enhanced students’ achievement in geometry across gender and achievement levels. Based on the result, it was recommended that experiential learning approach should be applied in teaching mathematics in secondary schools to enhance students’ achievement.
