The study sought to investigate the state of teaching and learning mathematics at the Senior High School level in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis. Stratified sampling and the census sampling techniques were used to select the sample for the study. The study considered 26 mathematics teachers and 90 students from three Senior High Schools. The quantitative data were analysed using descriptive statistics. The findings revealed that most of the mathematics teachers had not received professional training in mathematics education. Also, it was revealed that constructivists approach was used in teaching mathematics nevertheless, poor usage of ICT in the teaching and learning of mathematics was also exposed. Finally, it was discovered that there was enough teaching and learning resources, although technological resources were inadequate. One key implication of these findings is that there is the need for school administrations to provide adequate technological tools and resources that will enhance the teaching and learning of mathematics and increase the use of ICT materials in the mathematics classroom.
