Level of students’ attitude, interest in Mathematics related courses and students’ perception about their teachers’ teaching methodology is analyzed in this study. This study investigated a relationship between students’ perception and their Mathematics results. There were 330 students selected using random sampling, from different departments who were taking Mathematics course in fall 2017 at Sukkur IBA University. A survey was conducted through questionnaire and data were collected. Using inferential statistics (Pearson correlation, One-way ANOVA test and Independent t-test), data analysis was performed through statistical package (SPSS) version 19.0.
