Abstract:

The study was carried out to find if there were any differences in the effect of career-related instruction on mathematics achievement of urban and rural students. The design of the study was the nonrandomized pretest-posttest quasi-experimental type since intact classes were used in the sampled schools. Three hundred and eighty-eight Senior Secondary Two (SS2) students from two urban schools and two rural schools randomly selected from Benue State were involved in the study. The main instrument used for data collection was the Mathematics Achievement Test (MAT) developed by the researchers. A two-way Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) was used to analyze the data collected. The findings of the study showed that urban students performed significantly better than their rural counterparts when taught mathematics using careerrelated instruction. The study concluded that this result might be due to greater awareness of career implications of mathematics topics by urban students involved in the study.
