Abstract

Mathematics teaching and learning is an important factor that leads to the success of the students' achievement. Since mathematics is one of the important subjects at Malaysian Institute of Information Technology (MIIT), Universiti Kuala Lumpur, this study aims to investigate on ICT application in learning mathematics among engineering technology students. The use of e learning and internet resources including social networking medium is integrated in traditional approach teaching mathematics. Ten bachelor students from Networking System program were selected to be the research participants. Semi-structured interviews and documents analysis were used to gather the information on their experience in learning mathematics using the ICT. The research findings revealed that the ICT could assist students in their understanding of the mathematics concept and were able to solve problem solving. This research also draws conclusion and recommendations to improve lecturers' style of teaching by using ICT equipment as a tool to make the teaching and learning environment more meaningful and interesting.
