Keywords:Academic, Internet Addiction, Mathematics, Performance, Secondary Level
The major purpose of this research is to determine whether or not the problematic internet use has a significant impact on mathematical ability within the setting of Pakistani schools with well-established counseling facilities. Correlational analysis was used as part of a cross-sectional study design in this investigation. Three hundred and fifty-eight (male 226; female 132) individuals between the ages of 14 and 18 were recruited using a purposive selection strategy to guarantee a representative sample. All of these students come from Rawalpindi and Islamabad colleges. The severity of internet use was evaluated with the use of Young’s Internet Addiction Test. The cumulative average of the student’s most recent set of comprehensive exam was used to determine academic success in mathematics. Academic performance was shown to be negatively correlated with internet dependence (r = -.205, p<.01). Differences in internet addiction between sexes were found, however they were not statistically significant. The results of this study highlight the significance of encouraging efficient and prudent internet use among secondary and upper secondary school pupils. The possible academic consequences of students' improper internet use should also be communicated to all stakeholders including school psychologists and counselors who are responsible for formulating behavior modification strategies in collaboration with parents and college staff.
