This study aimed at finding out mathematics teachers' attitudes towards photo math application in solving mathematical problems using mobile camera; it also aim to identify significant differences in their attitudes according to their stage of teaching, educational qualifications, and teaching experience. The study used judgmental/purposive sampling method involving 127 male and female teachers from Directorate of Education District of BaniKinana in Irbid- Jordan, during the academic year 2014/2015. They filled in a 27-item survey instrument that was used to collect primary data. Secondary data were collected by using both printed and online literature. The study used both qualitative and quantitative techniques such as Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) and ANOVA for data analysis. The findings revealed high positive mathematics teachers' attitudes towards photo math application in solving mathematical problems using mobile camera. The results also revealed no statistically significant differences in teachers' attitudes towards photo math due to their stage of teaching, and teaching experience, while these differences were observed due to teacher educational qualifications, in favor of those holding diploma degrees. Finally, the study recommends that those in charge of planning mathematical curriculum to do photo math application teaching from basic to secondary stages.
