Mobile learning has been expanding due to the significance growth and demand for wireless and mobile computing technologies in recent years. It offers a new paradigme shift in learning dimension that conventional classrooms may fail to offer in the teaching and learning approach. This study explores the integration of mobile learning in mathematics at the higher learning institution as research on the use of mobile learning for the teaching and learning of Mathematics appears to be limited. The study focused to examine student’s perceptions and experience of mobile learning in Mathematics classroom and also to examine the significant of mobile learning on attitude towards Mathematics. The study involved a total of 70 students at one of the technical university in Malaysia. The students reported their perceptions and the pre and post experiences through a survey questionnaire. The findings reported that the increase level of students’ learning excitement, engaging and positively able to be an independent learner after they experienced mobile learning in formal classroom setting. Hence, mobile learning does significantly increase students’ attitude toward significance of Mathematics and reduce Mathematics anxiety.
