Abstract

The current study investigated how improving student engagement, motivation, and autonomy through evidenced-based strategies could help decrease math anxiety in the classroom. The curriculum embedded in this project will propose teaching strategies that increase student engagement, motivation, and autonomy to ultimately enhance student learning experiences. The objective is to use research findings supported by the Self-Determination Theory to build teaching strategies embedded in the mathematics curriculum that improve student engagement, motivation, and autonomy. Ultimately, the current project will use teaching strategies within the curriculum to decrease math anxiety. Findings of the project and implications to teachers will be discussed.
