 Abstract 
This project is a research work which set out to assess students’ performances in mathematics  in  some  selected  secondary  schools  in  Sokoto  North  local government area of Sokoto State from 2013 to 2018. In order to achieve this, two  main  objectives  were  pursued  -  to  ascertain  students  performances  in mathematics  in  some  selected  secondary  schools  in  Sokoto  North  local government  area  between  2013  to 2018  and  also  to  ascertain  the factors that determines  students  performance  in  mathematics  using  a  descriptive  research design  and  questionnaire  as  instrument  of  data  collection  while  adopting purposive  non  probability  sampling  technique.  Data  obtained  was  analyzed, organized  and  tabulated  statistically  using  simple  percentage  ratio  and interpreted upon. It was discovered at the course of  the research that students’ performances in mathematics from 2013 to 2018 have  been consistently  poor and factors such as demographic factors, students’ arithmetic ability, motivation and  concentration,  curriculum,  and  school  context  and  facilities  are determinants of students’ performances in mathematics. Going by the discovery,  we recommended  that Federal,  State,  Local  governments  and  Private  schools should  have  Mathematics  laboratory,  improve  teachers  pay,  welfare  and encourage in - service training, parents should encourage their wards to put in more effort in studying mathematics, curriculum development should be left in the hands of expert and good governance should be promoted in order to reduce poverty  which  has  made  some  parents  not  to  provide  necessary  mathematics materials for their children.
