Chapter 1: Motivation and Self-Efficacy in Mathematics Education. Dale H. Schunk and Kerri Richardson (University of North Carolina at Greensboro) contend that an important means of raising students’ motivation for mathematics learning is by developing their self-efficacy (perceived capabilities) for learning and performing well. The authors present research to substantiate this point and offer suggestions for enhancing self-efficacy and motivation in mathematics classrooms.
