Learning style refers to the ability of learners to perceive and process information in learning situations. The learners learning style based on instructional strategy will improve the academic performances. In mathematics it improves the problem solving ability of the students in the areas of Arithmetic reasoning, Numerical ability and Non-verbal problems quickly and correctly within the prescribed time. Three of the most popular learning styles are visual, auditory, and kinesthetic in which students take in information. This study has found statistically significant difference between the result of pre and the post test achievements in mathematics. Findings of the study reveal that, kinesthetic learning style found to be more prevalent that visual and auditory learning styles among secondary school students.
