Abstract: This study investigated how Cooperative Computer Instruction (CCI) could enhance students understanding of Algebra concepts. In addition, this study also determined the influence of gender on the performance of students exposed to cooperative and individualized instruction. 60 second year senior secondary school students (SSS II) were sampled from three public secondary schools, in Minna, Niger State, Nigeria. Pre-test, post-test, experimental, control group design was employed. Mathematics Achievement Test (MAT) was used to collect the data. The pre-test and the post-test data were analyzed using One-way ANOVA and t-test statistics. The findings of the study showed that the performance of students exposed to Cooperative Computer Instruction (CCI) were better than their counterparts exposed to the Individualized Computer Instruction (ICI), and conventional classroom instruction respectively. However, there was no significant difference between male and female students exposed to CCI and ICI. Based on the finding, it was recommended among others that teachers should be encouraged to use cooperative computer instruction to improve students’ performance in mathematical concepts.
