Abstract

This study aimed to examine students' perceptions on the adoption of the Graphing calculator (GC) instructional approach in learning Probability. During the study, students were provided GCs and selfdesigned instructional activities modules for their learning. At the end of the study, questionnaires were distributed to collect their views on the adoption of the GC instructional approach in Probability learning. It was found that students' perceptions in the six aspects: the GC usage, quality of the output from the GC, GC helped students to understand probability, GC helped in increasing students confidence in problem solving, GC helped in students communication, GC helped to foster students attitude towards probability learning, are favourable. ANOVA also showed that there are no significant differences in the mean scores among students of different levels when the GC instructional approach was adopted. Majority of the students found that leaning probability is more fun and interesting with the GC instructional approach.
