The purpose of the present research was to reveal students' perceptions regarding the use of the interactive whiteboard in the mathematics classroom within the framework of the Technology Acceptance Model. Semi-structured interviews were performed with 58 secondary school students (5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades) to collect data. The data obtained were encoded and interpreted using the content analysis technique within the framework of the Technology Acceptance Model-3 components. Students' perceptions were divided into categories of perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness and perceived negativities, which were names created by the researcher. Based on the findings, it was revealed that the participants had positive perceptions of the use of the interactive whiteboard in the mathematics classroom. Specifically, they found it beneficial because it enabled students to better understand the course, enabled students to be engaged in a meaningful learning and effectual engagement in the classroom, increased students' concentration, and saved time. It was concluded that the participants found the use of the interactive whiteboard useful and easy. Thus, they accepted this technology.
