Capstone Project Title
How Can Structured Mathematics Offer Choice in Order to Promote Intrinsic Motivation in Elementary Students?
Emily Fang Yen
The research question addressed in this study was How can structured mathematics offer choice in order to promote intrinsic motivation in lower elementary students? After researching the literature review, this project has shown that adding differentiation, setting goals and number choice to the lesson helps the student engage and creates an inner motivation to participate in the math lesson. The research focuses on North Carolina Math Standards, Number Choice, Differentiation and Student Engagement. This project was designed based on Backwards Design by Wiggins and McTighe. The curriculum was a two-week unit intended to teach first-grade students in the North Carolina Math Standards of Operations & Algebraic Thinking. The goal of the project is to provide teachers with an easy-to-use lesson plan that will help them promote inner motivation for students to take part in math lessons.
