Chapter 15: Motivating Mathematics Students with Manipulatives: Applying Self-Determination Theory to Intrinsically Motivate Students. Brett D. Jones (Virginia Tech), Lida J. Uribe-Flórez (New Mexico State University), and Jesse L. M. Wilkins (Virginia Tech) consider how self-determination theory can help explain why students are motivated to work on mathematics classroom activities involving manipulatives. They also discuss how educators can use this theory as a framework to become more intentional about using manipulatives to motivate students.
