Abstract: 

The main objective of this study is to identify factors contributing to students’ low performance in Mathematics Education in high Schools at CBTP & Practicum site zones of Jimma University. A survey design which used qualitative and quantitative aspects of research were implemented. Questionnaires and interview schedules were used to collect data. Participants (N=361) were made up of 197 girls, 164 boys and ten mathematics teachers from high schools. The research instruments used were the questionnaire which had close ended question for the students and interview for the teachers. Descriptive statistical analysis was used to interpret the data. The study revealed that learners attributed their low performance in mathematics to both internal and external factors such as laziness, lack of practice, lack of interest, absenteeism by themselves, material resources and educational facilities, poor parents support, methods of teaching, bad characters of teachers, poor back ground in the subject at lower levels, change of medium of instruction for oromiya region students, the abstract nature of mathematics and lack of guidance and counseling. The study recommends that the Ministry of Education should give sufficient training for mathematics teachers; educational facilities should be improved and made sufficient. Teachers should also introduce different methods of teaching to assist students. Difficulties faced by oromiya students due to the change of medium of instruction should be addressed. Awareness with regard to the importance of education should be created on Parents so that they will support and create awareness in their children. Finally, students should be guided and encouraged to view mathematics like the rest of the subjects in the school curriculum.
