Effect of Fact Fluency Card Strategy Using Computational Fluency for Improvement of Achievement in Mathematics among Primary School Pupils in Jos Metropolis, Plateau State, Nigeria
The paper examined the effect of fact fluency card (FFC) strategy using computational fluency for improvement of pupils’ achievement in primary school mathematics students in Jos metropolis, plateau state, Nigeria. The target population for the study is primary school pupils in Jos metropolis. A sample of ninety four (94) Primary five pupils was selected from Divine grace school, Jos, plateau State. The sample was divided into two groups, namely experimental and control groups. The experimental group consist 47 pupils who were taught by the use of fact fluency card (FFC) strategy and the control group comprising 47 pupils were taught by the conventional method of teaching. SPSS software was used to analyze the data collected. The statistical techniques used in analyzing the data were description and inferential statistics. Findings of the study showed statistically significant difference in the mean scores of the two groups. It was found that the post test scores of the experimental group is greater than that of the control group. Therefore, fact fluency card (FFC) strategy has effect on pupils’ achievement in primary school mathematics in Jos metropolis, plateau state, Nigeria.
