Abstract: Mathematics Education as a transdisciplinary course of study has been reimaged in foresight of the fifth industrial revolution, driven by digitization, digitalization, and digital transformations. This study investigated the effects of GeoGebra-Supported Model Based Learning (GSMBL) on students? academic performance in Solid Geometry in Uyo Metropolis of AkwaIbom State, Nigeria. Quasi-experimental; a pretest-posttest non-equivalent control groups design was adopted for the study. Using purposive-random sampling approach, two intact classes were derived from two schools. The instrument for data collection; Solid Geometry Performance Test (SGEPT), trial-tested on a group of students had a reliability index of 0.87. Treatments were given to the two groups via lessons on Solid Geometry, and analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to analyse and interprets datasets. The results of the study shown that, students exposed to GeoGebra Supported Model Based Learning performed significantly higher than students taught Solid Geometry using Engagement Learning Strategy. This was attributed to the technological affordance inherent in GeoGebra, being a Dynamic Geometry System. Similarly, gender had no significant effect on students? academic performance when taught the concept of Solid Geometry using the two teaching strategies. This was attributed to active involvement, equity, and inclusiveness of all learners during the learning processes. Male and female showed equal cognitive abilities, adaptation and accommodation in a dynamic-interactive learning environment. It was recommended that Mathematics teachers should diversify instructional approaches through utilization of digital tools. Stakeholders and government should provide Mathematics Laboratory with state-of-the-art facilities to promote the teaching and learning of Mathematics in Secondary schools.
