The current study aimed to validate Attitude Mathematics instrument (ATMI) by confirmatory factor analysis using AMOS program. This (ATMI) administered to 350 tenth grade students in schools in Irbid, Jordan. The students responded on a five- point Likert scale. Confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) supported the original six- factor correlated structure based on several fit indices, especially after outfit items deleted. The validation provided evidence that this ATMI can be a viable scale to measure students’ attitudes toward mathematics, or by researchers in their researches. The researcher recommended that the teachers and researchers could use this ATMI to measure attitudes toward mathematics, and using Confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) in developing or verification of the structural validity for the scales.
