Abstract
This study aims to investigate the effect of Using Blended Learning On the Achievement of the 6th Grade students on Mathematics. A purposeful sample of the study consisted of (168) male and female students chosen from two schools, they were divided in four groups, two groups in each school: a controlled group which consisted of (42) students in each school, were taught according to the traditional way, while the experimental group consisted of (42) students in each school who were taught according to a program based on learning objects. The researchers used the experimental approach and the quasi- experimental design in this study. A physical concepts test and a visual thinking test also used. They were applied on the four groups before and after applying the study. The educational material was prepared, according to the program based on learning objects. The researchers used different statistical methods, which consisted of the arithmetic means, standard deviations, and twoway( ANCOVA). The study found out that there are a statistical significant differences in each level of physical concepts and visual thinking among the 10th grade students due to teaching method, in favor of the experimental group. and there were a statistical significant differences in the level of physical concepts due to gender, in favor of the female, and there were no statistical significant differences in the level of visual thinking due to gender, or to the interaction between the gender and the teaching method. In light of the results of the study, the researchers recommended that: Learning Objects- based program should be activated in both schools and universities teaching, professional training and rehabilitation for the teachers should be provided, and more research on the effects of Learning Objects should be conducted on different variables and, schooling levels and other subjects.
