Product Description

By Amanda Jansen, James Middleton

Why do smart people disengage from mathematical pursuits… and how can we reverse the trend?

This book is designed to be the go-to source for information on mathematical motivation. It presents the full body of research on motivation in a useful, interesting, and provocative matter.

“Practical yet rigorous, Motivation Matters helps teachers understand that all students can be motivated, and provides research-based strategies for engaging students in challenging mathematics. The authors respect teachers and their intelligence: They tell stories to illustrate how research is reflected in practice, but they offer no quick fixes. Instead, the book engages the teacher’s most basic motivation: How can I reach these children at this time, to help them realize their mathematical and personal potential? This is one that you will want to read.”
Glenda Lappan
Professor, Michigan State University
Past President, NCTM (1998–2000)
