Technology holds pedagogical affordances that can help address low performance in mathematics education. This research study investigated which factors significantly contributed to technology usage by Mathematics teachers. The 155 teachers surveyed were found to be regular users of computers, demonstrating a high opinion of the pedagogical worth of technology and perceiving the tool as being useful for enhancing Mathematic education. However, only a minority was really using technology in their teaching practices. Teachers reiterated the need to be adequately trained in the pedagogical integration of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), insisted on the provision of better computer services in schools, including access to the Internet and solicited the support of parents to accompany their children in their studies. A revised theoretical model was drawn based on the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) and unified theory of acceptance and use of technology (UTAUT) models, and the two ICT related variables that caused significant variances in technology usage were perceived ease of use and facilitating conditions.
