Abstract

Learning mathematics requires lot of practice and dedication. There are few teachers who can teach this subject interestingly therefore in addition to classroom teaching there should be supplement to students. Self learning material with auto instruction should be developed using psychological theories and concepts. Computer can be used for this purpose because it can provide audio visual effects and also face to face interaction with students is possible. Computers can be utilized to develop auto instructional material with the following facilities viz. self-paced learning, self-directed learning, the exercising of various senses and the ability to represent content in a variety of media. Humans are multi-sensory animals so they learn better if all the senses are involved in the learning process. In this line investigators developed Computer Assisted Instruction and implemented in one of the schools of Vadodara.  Three groups were formed control group (taught through usual conventional method), Experimental Group A( taught through only Computer Assisted Instruction(CAI)) and Experimental Group B( taught through CAI with simultaneous discussion). Reaction scale of five points was developed by the investigators and data were analyzed through chi-square test to know the effectiveness of the developed CAI.

Keywords: Computer Assisted Instruction, Effectiveness, Self Learning Material and auto instruction.
