Most of the mathematics students evidence a definite tendency toward an attitudinal deficiency, which can be understood as intolerance to the matter, affecting their scholar performance. Information and communication technologies have been gradually included within the process of teaching mathematics. Such adoption of technology changed the educational process, thus generating a meaningful impact as shown by studies carried out by Galbraith and Haines. They developed a theoretical model aiming to explain this phenomenon, based on the component elements of attitude toward mathematics and computers: Mathematics engagement, mathematics confidence, mathematics motivation, computer confidence, and student's interaction between mathematics and computer. The purpose of this study is to validate such a model against experimental data coming from a sample of undergraduates from the fields of administration and economics. The observed fit indices, computed by structural equation modeling, corroborated that the theoretical model adjusts well to the empirical data.
