Abstract: This study investigated teacher’s utilization of innovative teaching strategies in enhancing achievement in mathematics among secondary school students in Enugu State. The study employed the descriptive survey design. The population of the study was 192 (118 males and 74 females) mathematics teachers. Purposive sampling technique was used to select all the mathematics teachers. The instrument for data collection was the structured questionnaire on utilization of innovative teaching strategies in enhancing achievement in mathematics. The reliability index was determined using chron bach alpha and found to be 0.86. One research question and one hypothesis were tested at 0.05 level of significance. The research question was answered using mean while the hypothesis was tested using independent Chi-square statistics. Results showed that mathematics teachers rarely use innovative teaching strategies during their lessons. It was observed that out of the fourteen innovative strategies in mathematics teaching, only four strategies namely: discussion web, manipulative and project-based learning strategies were frequently used by mathematics teachers. It was also revealed that the gender of mathematics teachers does not influence their utilisation of innovative teaching strategies.
