##### Abstract

This study aims at investigating the influence of using Microsoft Mathematics in the academic achievement of the 11th Grade students in the literary stream in the unit of equations and inequalities and their motivation towards learning math in Nablus. This study is an attempt to answer the following questions:
What is the influence of using Microsoft Mathematics 4 in the academic achievement of the 11th Grade students in the literary stream and their motivation towards learning mathematics in Nablus?
In order to answer the question of the study and test the hypotheses, the researcher uses the experimental method in its semi- experimental style. In other words, the population of the study comprise the 11th grade students in the literary stream in Nablus. The sample of the study comprises 57 11th grade students from Abdul Hamid Al- Sayeh Secondary School during the first semester of the scholastic year 2018-2019.
They are divided into two groups, namely: experimenting and controlling groups. In the former, Microsoft Mathematics 4 is used to teach the unit of equations and inequalities while the latter, students are taught using the regular traditional method.
The following tools are applied on the sample:
- A summative assessment is carried out to measure the achievement of the 11th grade students in the literary stream after ending their equations and inequalities unit. Furthermore, the validity of the test is checked by showing it to jury of arbitrators, Cronbach Alpha is calculated and it is about (0.75).
- Motivation towards learning mathematics is measured and tested in both groups and it is distributed before studying the unit of equations and inequalities and after finishing it. The validity of the test is checked by showing it to jury of arbitrators, Cronbach Alpha is calculated and it is about (0.714).
The resulted data is treated using the Analysis of Covariance (hereinafter referred to as ‘ANCOVA’) in order to check the differences between the arithmetic mean of the experimental and controlling groups and measuring students’ motivation towards learning mathematics.
The main results of the study can be summarized as:
- There are differences at the statistical level (α=0.05) between the arithmetic mean of the marks of the students in both groups in the summative test due to the used teaching method (regular or Microsoft Mathematics 4) which is in favor of the experimental group.
- There are differences at the statistical level (α=0.05) between the arithmetic mean of both groups in the scale of motivation towards learning mathematics due to the used teaching method (regular or Microsoft Mathematics 4) which is in favor of the experimental group.
In light of those results, the researcher recommends a number of recommendations, namely: Activating the teaching method of Microsoft Mathematics program for the great results in the academic achievement of students of the 11th grade – the literary stream and the increase in their motivation towards learning mathematics.
