- ItemOpen AccessThe Relationship among Teachers’ Problem Solving Abilities, Students’ Learning Styles and Students’ Academic Achievement in physics(2013) Adeyemo, S.A.; Babajide, V.F.T.; Amusa, J.O.This research work examined the relationship among teachers’ abilities, students’ learning styles and students’ achievement in physics. A total of one hundred and fifty (150) randomly selected senior secondary school 11 (SS11) physics students and ten (10) physics teachers from five (5) selected schools in Lagos Mainland Local government area of Lagos State served as the subjects of this study. The simple survey design was adopted for this study. Data were gathered with the research instruments which included a learning style questionnaire administered to the selected students and a questionnaire on teachers’ expertise which was administered to the selected teachers. Data was analyzed using simple regression analysis, statistical package for social science (SPSS) such as mean, percentage, t-test and analysis of variance (ANOVA). The outcome of the findings from the study include the following 1. The relationship between teachers’ problem solving abilities and students academic achievement in physics is positive and significant 2. The relationship between students’ learning styles and their academic achievement in physics is positive and significant. 3. The main and combined effect of teachers’ problem solving abilities, students’ learning styles on students’ academic performance in physics are positive and significant. Based on these findings, it was concluded that teachers’ problem solving abilities and students’ learning styles have significant effects on the students’ achievement in physics.
