This study investigated the effects of GeoGebra software on students’ academic performance in mensuration at the Senior High School level. The study employed a quantitative research method which adopted a quasi-experimental research design with pretest-posttest non-equivalent control groups. Test and questionnaire were used to collect data for the study and the collected data was analysed using descriptive statistics and an independent sample t-test. Two intact classes comprising 60 second-year Senior High School students of the Upper East Region were used for both control and experimental groups. The independent t-test analysis revealed a significant difference in the posttest mean scores between the control and experimental groups. Again, the descriptive statistics of the questionnaire showed positive feedback from students towards incorporating GeoGebra software in the teaching and learning of Mensuration. The study, therefore, recommended that the use of GeoGebra should be made to form an integral part of the Senior High School Curriculum and teachers should be trained on how to use it. Also, Teachers should incorporate GeoGebra in teaching mathematics in Senior High Schools since it has positive effects on students’ academic performance.

Keywords : GeoGebra software, Traditional Method, Students’ Academic Performance, Students’ Perception.
