The study was designed to investigate the influence of marital status on mathematics teachers’ instructional delivery in secondary schools in Obubra Local Government Area of Cross River State, Nigeria. A total of 250 teachers (150 married and 100 single/divorced) from all the secondary schools in Obubra Local Government was sampled. A 10-item questionnaire was administered to the teachers to ascertain the level of instructional delivery. Chi-square was used in analysing data generated for the study. The result showed that there is a significant influence of marital status on mathematics teachers’ instructional delivery indicating that married teachers were more effective in instructional delivery than single/divorced teachers. Hence, recommendation was made thus: Government should place emphasis on the recruitment of married mathematics teachers who tend to be calm and productive than their single counterparts.
