Abstract


The learning-teaching process in mathematics has been modified, or at least influenced, by information technologies through one of its main instruments, the computer. The aim of this paper is to examine if there is a difference regarding gender on the Attitude towards Mathematics of the students of Accounting and Administration at UASLP. In order to test the hypothesis, we used a statistical method that contrasts differences of means; our study uses a sample of 120 students. The main empirical finding is that there is no difference between men and women regarding the attitude towards mathematics.
