This study explored the attitudes of teachers towards the use of interactive whiteboards (IWBs) in Mathematics teaching and learning contexts, and also sought insights into teachers' actual use of IWBs in Mathematics classes. The study also investigated possible factors affecting teachers' positive and negative attitudes towards IWB technology. Data were collected through questionnaires distributed to 82 teachers in different institutions across Andimeshk, Iran, from Secondary schools. Questionnaire results revealed that teachers have positive attitudes towards the use of IWBs in Math instruction and are aware of the potential of this technology. Responses given in interviews indicated that all Math teachers are supportive of IWB technology in their classes, and observations revealed that IWBs are used with their basic functions in Math classes. The statistical analysis revealed that the more teachers use IWBs, the more they like this technology.
