Abstract

The aim of this study is to find the effects of the answer based computer assisted mathematics instruction at geometry on students’ success and attitudes. In the study, experimental research model with pre-test post-test control group was used. The participants of the study composed of 78 students who attended the 8th grade secondary school in Northern Cyprus under the Ministry of National Education in the fall semester of 2017–2018. In order to reveal students’ success and mathematics attitude “Math Attitude Scale” and “Success Test” were used as the data collection tools. While the traditional teaching method was applied in the control group, computer assisted mathematics teaching was applied in the experimental group using answer based software. As a result, the answer-based computer assisted mathematics teaching method applied in the experimental group has an important effect in improving the academic achievement of the students but no significant difference found in the mathematics attitudes of the students.
