Abstract: The study focused on the impact or teacher's quality and teaching resources in teaching Mathematics in Primary schools. Performance of the learners is a basic indicator of effective learning. Grade scored in internal examinations are normally used as measures of the subjects. In this study, the researcher looked into qualifications, experience of teachers, teaching resources and the methods employed during instruction. The study further established that there are other factors that contribute to performance apart from the teacher's quality and teaching resources. Simple random and strategic sampling techniques were used. The sampled candidates were given questionnaires to fill in. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used. The researcher hopes that the findings of the study will be of great importance to the Mathematics learners, educators, parents and society at large.
