MATHmot – A longitudinal study on children’s motivation for mathematics learning

Co-constructing mathematics motivation in primary education – A longitudinal study in six European countries project (MATHMot) looks at the development of mathematics motivation and what affects this process from an international viewpoint. Norway, Sweden, Finland, Serbia, Portugal and Estonia takes part in the study.

How does it work?
We know less about the development of motivation to learn mathematics, especially on the transition between elementary to middle school. MathMot investigates this development as well as factors affecting this process from an international viewpoint.

MathMot will investigate mathematics teaching and students learning in mathematics in grade 3 and 4 in 50 schools within each country. The study will follow up the same students one year later to see how their motivation has developed over time.
