Main Article Content

           Traditional instruction in mathematics leads to boredom and lower learning achievement. The researcher thus initiated an idea to develop hybrid media for enhancing learning in mathematics with grade 1 students. The objectives of this study were 1) to compare learning achievement before and after studying, 2) to compare learning retention, 3) to study the attitude of students who learn mathematics through hybrid media and 4) to study students’ satisfaction toward learning with the developed media. The experiment was conducted with 27 first-grade students at Baan Suan Khwans School, Uthaithani province. Results indicated that 1) learning achievement of students after using hybrid media for enhancing learning in mathematics was higher at a statistically significant level of .05. Besides, their learning retention statistically showed stable learning outcomes after 2 weeks without any significant changes. Their attitudes of hybrid media to promote learning in mathematics in overall was at the highest level ( gif.latex?\bar{x}= 2.87, S.D.= 0.16). Similarly, their satisfaction toward learning with the hybrid media was at the highest level ( gif.latex?\bar{x}=2.86, S.D.=0.16). Findings of this study could be applied to first-grade students across the country as well as in teaching mathematics to students of other levels.
