Abstract: The study centred on learnersí skill improvement of inverse squared matrix in Mathematics via 3 instructional methods which comprised of conventional, computerized formula and combination instructional modes. As an empirical research study, which made up 120 SS II students that were randomly selected into each group that contained 40 students each? Two research questions and hypotheses were raised and tested at a significant level of 0.05. Instruments used were developed questionnaires on studentsí attitudes towards Mathematics (r = 0.65) and adapted one on Computer (r = 0.69) and the computerized formula instructional mode. Data were analyzed through the use of descriptive statistics like mean and standard deviation, t-test, One-way ANOVA and Scheffe test. Findings revealed that students had poor attitudes towards Mathematics and Computers and had dismal performance in the pre-test achievement test in Mathematics. However, findings revealed that students that were exposed to the Combination instruction mode (C3) performed better than other two groups whose performances were at variance. The implication of these findings and recommendations were discussed in the study.
