The use of distance learning platforms, digital educational resources and mobile devices expand pedagogical arsenal. The subject of the study is teachers’ readiness to use mobile technologies in education, for the issue of motivation remains important. The purpose is to identify motivational factors and define mathematics students and teachers’ motivation level to use mobile technologies in teaching. The survey involved 74 people, of which 38 were bachelor students of Elabuga Institute of Kazan Federal University in the pedagogical direction (profile “Mathematics and Physics”) and 36 mathematics teachers of the Republic of Tatarstan. The author identified motivational factors characterizing mathematics teachers and students’ attitude to mobile learning and defined the degree of their relationship with the teaching staff readiness to use mobile technologies in teaching mathematics. The results of the survey confirmed the teachers and students’ high motivation to use mobile technologies in teaching mathematics. The calculation of the Spearman correlation coefficient allowed concluding that the level of motivation decreases with age, but the relationship is weak, insignificant. The results can be used to define the level of motivation and assess the motivational factor significance in the teaching staff training, retraining and advanced training in the field of mathematics mobile learning.
