Majority of the research finding shows that questioning techniques is one the major factors affecting the teaching and learning mathematics in our schools. This study is designed to seek views of the Students on the effects of teachers’ classroom questioning techniques on their performance in mathematics. The opinion of 1000 Senior Secondary Schools Students level from same selected schools in Bungudu Local Government of Zamfara state was sought on a four Likert scale questionnaire. The instrument consisting of forty statement on how they perceived the effects of the teacher’s classroom questioning techniques in mathematics. The results showed that the respondents agreed that their teachers’ classroom questioning techniques were having a positive impact in their learning outcome performance in mathematics. The t-test results showed that there was gender significant difference on the effects of the teacher’s questioning techniques in relation to mathematics performance. The result also revealed that there was significant difference existed between the choice of subject and students learning experiences. However, based on the findings of the study, the researchers recommended that workshops, seminars, conferences and in-service training be organize for the mathematics teachers on how to use effective classroom questioning techniques in the teaching and learning mathematics senior secondary school level. It was also recommended that the classroom questioning techniques be included in the mathematics curriculum for teacher’s education programmes.
