**
**In
this paper we examine the relationships between students’ attitudes towards
mathematics and technology, therefore, we take a Galbraith and Hines’ scale
(1998, 2000) about mathematics confidence, computer confidence, computer and
mathematics interaction, mathematics motivation, computer motivation, and
mathematics engagement. 164 questionnaires were applied to undergraduate
students of several profiles:
business and management,
mecatronic engineering, industrial engineering, strategic system engineering and
mechanic engineering all they in a study carried out at the *Universidad
Politécnica de Aguascalientes*. The statistical procedure used was factorial
analysis with an extracted principal component. The Hypothesis: Ho: ρ=0 has no
correlation, while Ha: ρ ≠0 does. Statistics test to prove: *Χ ^{2}*,
Bartlett test of sphericity, KMO (Kaiser-Meyer_Olkin) Significance level:
α=0.05; p<0.05 therefore reject
