New evidence reveals the best way to motivate students in maths

Students all around the world moan and groan when it comes to maths homework, and even when it’s time for mathematics class.It’s often seen as one of the most challenging subjects in school, and many students who feel they aren’t good at maths tend to steer away from the subject as soon as they have the choice to do so.They often go for more arts-based programmes at university-level, believing they won’t have any real need for maths out in the world. But often, these programmes require students to take a maths course or pre-requisite, so you can’t really run away from the subject.Even in the real world, students from all backgrounds will likely have to do some form of mathematics in their personal or working life.Disliking maths starts early on, when students aren’t able to build on a strong foundation in the subject, and end up resenting it all the way into adult life.So how can teachers make maths more interesting to engage young minds to actually like the discipline?
