Abstract

This research is done as an approach to improve or enhance the quality of education.

Accordingly, this study explores the effectiveness of teaching aids (concrete materials) in the teaching and learning process of mathematics in primary schools. Eighty six people from Sekolah Kebangsaan Rawang consisted of eighty three pupils year four, five and six and three teachers who taught mathematics have been selected to participate in this research. Data collections are based on questionnaires to determine the effectiveness on teaching aids that have been used in schools. Besides, the respondent’s perceptions of the importance and role of teaching aids in teaching and learning of mathematics also the frequency of certain teaching aids usage. The measures used are based on the value of percentage and mean. The result shows that mathematics teachers have been using concrete materials as the main ingredient in starting a new methodology to pupils. Hopefully, they will found it easier to absorb any new topic after applied this approached.
