Abstract

An interactive white board is a tool that provides flexibility in the teaching of mathematics and mathematical concepts in classroom. It allows mathematics teaches the opportunity to present to their student’s multiple visualization and multimedia presentations. The advent of this new material has made it easy for mathematicians to properly explain abstract concepts in mathematics to their students. The purpose of this study is to access the impact, affordability and usage of Interactive White Board (IWB) in Warri South Local Government Area of Delta State in comparison to the normal traditional black or white board,as it affects the teaching and learning of mathematics. A questionnaire including 100 participants was given out and the result showed that, though the use of interactive white board greatly enhanced the understanding of mathematical concepts in schools where they are used, most private and public schools could not afford it and thus most mathematics teachers have not seen the IWB not to talk of using it. The IWB is also called the Smart Board.
