Abstract—This study investigates mathematics teachers’
readiness towards Education 4.0 and their attitude towards the
use of technology in teaching mathematics. The study
participants included 162 mathematics teachers in Kota Bharu,
Kelantan. A quantitative approach with a questionnaire was
employed in this study. Data collected were analysed by using
descriptive and t-tests and analysis of variance using Statistical
Package for the Social Sciences version 27. The overall results
for mathematics teachers’ readiness towards Education 4.0 lead
to uncertainty, which indicates that teachers are still not
prepared and lack knowledge about Education 4.0. When
grouped according to age, gender and grade level taught, the
results show that there is no significant difference between
teachers’ readiness towards Education 4.0. Meanwhile, for
attitude, the results reveal that teachers have a positive attitude
towards the use of technology in teaching mathematics,
regardless of their age, gender or grade level taught. However,
it shows a significant difference between male and female
teachers’ attitudes. For age and grade level taught, the results
show no significant difference between mathematics teachers’
attitudes towards the use of technology in teaching the subject.
Therefore, the study recommends that teachers should
strengthen their positive attitude towards the use of technology
in teaching and learning and that the higher authorities also
should participate in providing teachers knowledge on
Education 4.0 and helping them adapt to current educational
Index Terms—Education 4.0, mathematics, teachers’ attitude, technology.
