Abstract

This article discusses the factors which prevent secondary school teachers from using Information and Communication Technology (ICT) during their teaching of Mathematics in schools. Five factors have been identified based on literature reviews; 1) Self-confidence, 2) Time constraint, 3) Programs and training, 4) Facilities and resources, 5) Teachers' self-perception and attitude. A set of questionnaire consists of the factors was then developed and distributed to 178 mathematics teachers. In the context of Malaysia, the factor with the highest mean is time constraint (x=3.53), followed by facilities and resources (x=3.48), supportive assistance (x=3.14) and, programs and trainings (x=3.12). In addition, self-confidence and attitude recorded the mean of less than 3. Based on the findings, it is hoped that appropriate actions ad strategies can be made by the education ministry, teachers, students, parents and administration in schools in order to benefit from the use of ICT in the teaching and learning of Mathematics.
