Various teaching and learning approaches have been applied among educators to the students during the Movement and Control Orders (MCO) employed due to COVID-19. Educators especially those who are teaching the mathematics subject require comprehensive and effective tools to help their students understand the concept and able to do exercises with less face-to-face guidance or a normal conventional teaching approach. Teaching the mathematics subject especially to the Pre-Diploma students is very challenging as they are quite weak in mathematics fundamentals and coincidentally, they have to face the obstacles of teaching approach with Online learning during MCO. Hence, a mathematics teaching model with an online learning approach was created to make the teaching delivery effective, thus increasing the learning curve or performance of mathematics among students. The ongoing and final assessment results of the students were analysed using an independent sample t-test to measure the difference between those experiencing and without experiencing the suggested model.
