Abstract

The study investigated the effect of Jigsaw Instructional Strategy (JIS) as an alternative strategy for teaching Simple Harmonic Motion (SHM). The study employed quasi-experimental research. Senior school two (SS2) students offering physics were involved in the study. Performance Test was used and the data were analyzed using mean, standard deviation and Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA). The findings revealed that a significant difference existed between the performance of students taught SHM using JIS and those taught without, no significant interaction effect of treatments, gender and score levels on the achievement of students in SHM. The study concluded that JIS enhances students’ performance in teaching physics. It was recommended that Physics teachers should use jigsaw instructional strategy in teaching and learning of simple harmonic motion.
