Abstract: The problem in this research aroused due to poor performance of mathematics in secondary schools in Vurra County, Arua District. The purpose of this study is therefore to assess the importance of IT in teaching and learning of mathematics in secondary schools. The investigation was conducted in the three secondary schools in Vun-a County, Arua District. The researcher used about fifty (50) respondents of who were head teachers, teachers and learners who were closely linked with the use of IT. Interviews were set to teachers and learners while questionnaires were administered to teachers and head teachers to collect purposely data, or the use of information technology in teaching mathematics. The result of the study indicates that some teachers did not use IT in teaching and learning mathematics. This could cause poor performance. There was also need for the Administration to provide information technology materials as many schools could not access the IT materials. The study also found out that the use of IT was not supervised by the administrators. This caused low attitudes of teachers in using information technology for teaching mathematics leading to poor results. The implication of the study therefore is that poor attitude towards the use of IT, lack of knowledge of information technology and inaccessibility of teachers to IT materials caused poor performance in mathematics although other factors such as lack of teachers' knowledge of IT, no proper classroom situation could have caused poor results in mathematics.
