Abstract: The wide use of interactive whiteboard in the classroom has been a significant source of motivation in teaching and learning process, and consequently leads to better achievement. Likewise, interactive whiteboard has enormously contributed to geometry teaching in that it has created a relaxing learning environment for learners where learners can study geometry in a stress-free atmosphere. This paper aims to investigate the facilitating role of interactive whiteboard in geometry teaching. Furthermore, the study explores how interactive whiteboard motivates learners to achieve better in geometry.
