This study was aimed at examining the use of Cuisenaire rods on grade 9 learners’ performance in fractions. Pre-test, Post-test, and Control group quasi-experimental design was used for the study. The study group was made up of 250 grade 9 learners’. One hundred and twenty-five (125) learners were selected into the experiment group whiles One hundred and twenty-five (125) learners’ were selected into the control group through systematic simple random method. The data collected were analysed using Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) to find the Mean, Standard Deviation and Sample T-test. The mean and standard deviation were used to compare the pre-test and post-test between the Experimental group and Control group. The analysed results of the means, standard deviations and T-tests were used to reject the null hypotheses. The analysed results of Cuisenaire rods showed that the pre-test (mean = 8.372, SD=1.770) and post-test (mean = 12,428, SD=4.732), t=13,024 p< 0.05. The hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance.
