Abstract [en]

This survey is a case study with the purpose to find out the teacher´s perceptions about students´ motivation to mathematics. Further this study aims for the teacher´s vision on how they consider students´ motivation in mathematics in secondary school. To collect research data I have used semi structured interviews with four secondary school teachers. The result constructs according to categories that depict the purpose of the study. These categories define students’ motivation like achieving different goals, students’ basic knowledge, abilities and perceptions of mathematics and external factors that affect students’ motivation. Further the result was constructed according to categories that depict the teachers’ consideration to students’ motivation in mathematical teaching. These categories are the teacher´s attitudes, way of teaching and invidualizing work assignments.
