Abstract


The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of using the Online Graphing and Functional Plotter software on the achievement of the first-year students at Prince Faisal Technical College (PFTC) in basic mathematics. To achieve this goal, subjects from the first-year students at PFTC of the educational year (2013 /2014) was divided into the experimental and control groups with (28) students each. The two groups underwent pretest and posttest in the subject of functional plotting. The results of the study revealed that there was a statistically significant difference at (p < 0.05) between the groups on the postmathematics achievement test scores in favor of the experimental group. The researchers recommended providing the colleges with the computerized educational software in preparation for use in teaching, and working on sustainability of computer labs at colleges in sufficient numbers.
