Among the varieties of educational topics, mathematics as an essential subject, is taken under consideration in different aspects, but its abstract quiddity causes that people think mathematics and its classes have no relations with values. In this research while the values in mathematics and its teaching are introduced and investigated, the amount of teachers tendency’s in high school to different mathematics values and its relation to the teaching methods are studied. The data are collected by 53 questionnaires. The mathematics teachers of high schools in Fasa city filled the forms of this research. The attraction aspects of class activities focused on the value of the control.
