This study was aimed at identifying the impact of two infographics types (interactive and static), on developing mathematical concepts among female students at second grade intermediate in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. A quasi-experimental approach was adopted; the population of the study consisted of 82 female students. The students were divided into three groups: An experimental group studied by using animated infographics based on, 'technology helps easy and practical accessible curriculum teaching (THEPACT) strategy, an experimental group studied by using static infographics based on THEPACT strategy, and a control group studied by using traditional method. Real numbers and Pythagoras theorem were reformulated by using infographics, an achievement test of mathematical concepts was also prepared, hypotheses were formulated and tested. The data obtained were analyzed using mean, standard deviation and one way analysis of variance at p≤0.05. The results of post application of the achievement obtained reveal a statically significant difference (p≤0.05) between the mean scores of control group and the experimental groups. The difference is in favor of the experimental groups. The results obtained also reveal statically significant differences between mean scores of the two experimental groups on some concepts, the differences were in favor of the static infographics based on THEPACT strategy.
