The purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness of using computer software and social networks on improving the students' mathematical attitude. The research method is quasi-experimental with the pretest-posttest design with the control group. The research sample comprised 60 primary school students in the first and second-grade schools of Khomein in the academic year of 96-97. They were selected by simple random sampling method and 30 of them were in the experimental group and 30 in the control group. To collect data, Aiken attitude questionnaire, which consists of 16 questions in terms of Likert spectrum, was used. Using Cronbach's alpha coefficient, the reliability of the standard questionnaire was estimated to be 0.83. Initially, two groups were pre-test and the experimental group was trained using computer software and a social network (telegram) during 16 sessions in two months, and the control group was trained in the traditional way, then from two groups are tested. Data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The results of covariance analysis showed that using computer software and social networks improves students' mathematical attitude.
