Motivation, Not IQ, Matters Most for Learning New Math Skills | TIME.com

Motivation, Not IQ, Matters Most for Learning New Math Skills | TIME.com | Education & Learning | Scoop.it

"You don’t have to be born with math skills; solving problems is a matter of studying and motivation.

That may not seem like such a surprise, but it’s become easy to say ‘I just can’t do math.’ While some element of math achievement may be linked to natural inborn intelligence, when it comes to developing skills during high school, motivation and math study habits are much more important than IQ, according to a new study.

“It’s not how smart we are; it’s how motivated we are and how effectively we study that determines growth in math achievement over time,” says Kou Murayama..."

Kaley Hannon's curator insight, September 16, 2013 2:12 AM

A study done in Germany argues that it's not the children who have the high IQ's that are growing most in their math skills but it is the ones who are most motivated. Through the research conducted they collected evidence  that shows that the even though the kids with the higher IQ's started at a higher level when it came to understanding math the children who reported that they were motivated to learn math were the ones who picked up the math skills faster. 

Terri Goldson's curator insight, February 1, 2014 3:21 PM

Unfortunately the intelligence quotient has always been the standard measure used within education and beyond, that is said to determine our ability to learn. We know through common observation, that premise is not always an indicator of success. Other very important factors play a role in everyone’s ability to navigate through life.  Factors such as motivation, determination, perseverance and other intangibles are important influences. Tapping into those essential elements will make learning more meaningful for all learners.  Knowledge IS Power!

Chaeyeon Seo's curator insight, November 9, 2014 10:00 AM

Motivation is important not only in math but in every part of work
