Description

Urban students who struggle with student motivation and academic performance in the mathematics classroom often indicate that the subject is boring and not connected to their lives. Educational research suggests implementing different instructional strategies and incorporating technology address issues of student motivation and engagement. In this qualitative self study during student teaching, I researched how to effectively implement various instructional strategies and how to design more engaging lessons. The findings indicate that different instructional approaches as well as math problems connected to student interests help increase student engagement in the math classroom.
