Abstract: The primary objective of this study was to find out methods of using ICT tools in the teaching of Mathematics at junior level in primary schools. Specifically, the study sought to gain an appreciation of the extent to which teachers use different ICT tools in the teaching and learning processes in Mathematics at junior level in primary schools. A descriptive survey approach was used to collect the data on methods of using ICT tools. The study used questionnaires and interviews as research instruments. Questionnaires were completed by twelve teachers, five males and seven females. Interviews were conducted with four heads of schools, three males and one female. Convenient sampling techniques were used to select the sample. The study revealed that many teachers use the drill and practice method in teaching Mathematics using ICT tools like computers, laptops, as well as white boards. From the study it also emerged that school leaders should work to source the ICT resources needed like overhead projectors and tablets. From the study it can be concluded that some policies like assessment policies need to be reviewed to cater for the use of ICT tools. In addition to the reviewing of assessment policies, it was also concluded that there is need for all stakeholders to be actively involved in the acquisition of various ICT tool. The findings of the study recommends that the Ministry Of Primary and Secondary Education and schools should provide in-service training for teachers so that they keep abreast of new developments in software and ICT tools used in teaching.
