The objective of the current research is to identify the preferred mathematical learning styles according to VARK model among the students of the Mathematics Department, as well as the preferred mathematical learning styles according to VARK model among the students of the Mathematics Department in conformity with the gender variable. The research sample consisted of (264) male and female students from the third stage in the Department of Mathematics in the College of Education for Pure Sciences/University of Mosul for the academic year (2022/2023). To achieve the objectives of the research, the researchers adapted VARK scale in mathematics, and it consisted of (17) items of multiple choice type with four alternatives according to the learning styles within VARK model (visual style, auditory style, reading/writing style, and kinetic style). The validity and reliability of the scale was found, and after collecting the data and analyzing it statistically, finding the repetitions and the percentage of the research sample, the results were as follows:
- (44%) of students of the Mathematics Department preferred the reading/writing learning style (R), followed by the visual style with a rate of (35%), then the kinetic style with a rate of (13%) and finally the auditory style with a rate of (8%).
- There is no difference in learning styles according to VARK model, in conformity with the gender variable.
