Technology has gained a firm stronghold in society as well as modern classroom. Students are assumed to have a natural aptitude for computers. Over the past decades, educational websites have appeared to be "interactive" and "to make learning fun". This study employed quantitative method of research using 8th grade instructors from South East Dallas Texas school district. Data was collected via Microsoft Excel and SPSS computation. The survey instrument tested for internal consistency and reliability. The seven Likert scale items tested nine variables for Pearson correlation. A t-test detected non-significance at the p > 0.05 level of probability indicating that male teachers seldom use technology to teach math than their female colleagues. A second t-test showed a significant difference at p < 0.05 level for difference between younger math teachers (male and female) versus their older counterparts.
