Abstract

Educator tends to apply traditional approach where using transparency and white board in teaching mathematics. The purpose of this study is to determine whether there is any difference in student achievement when the educator used traditional method in teaching mathematics compared with if they were using more interactive approach as the tools in teaching. This is a case study involving students in three courses on Diploma Programme in Multimedia University who is taking business mathematics subjects. The randomly selected groups of students were given different type of teaching approach, which is by using multimedia and without using multimedia. The results from the test given to the students were analyzed to determine which method is better than the other. Finding revealed that teaching with more interactive approach is better compare with teaching using traditional approach.
