Results of hypothesis testing by using T test has indicated that there is significant difference (t=-2.424, df=543, p<0.05) in students' attitudes to learning Mathematics with technology between rural schools and non rural schools. Students from non rural schools possessed higher confidence with technology compared to students from rural schools. Besides, results of analysis also showed that there is no significant difference in students' attitudes to learning Mathematics with technology based on gender, streaming and level of schooling.
