Abstract: Interactive Whiteboard has recently been very popular in education. Unlike traditional methods, technology enhanced learning in particular the use of Interactive Whiteboard leads to effective instruction in the classroom. The use of Interactive Whiteboard has a positive effect upon comprehension, high concentration, enhanced motivation and learner participation which are considered as major factors in efficient learning. This study investigates the role of Interactive Whiteboard on learner achievement in Mathematics classroom. 40 university students participated the study. While the students in the control group had instruction through traditional methods, students in the experimental group were instructed through IWB. The study lasted 6 weeks and it was found that students in the experimental group yielded better results in the examinations than the control group
