ab: Summary: This article focuses on learning environments that support
studentsâ€™ mathematical understanding and enhance their adaptive
motivation. Drawing on the authorsâ€™ experiences as teachers and
teacher educators, they first describe adaptive motivation. They then
introduce TARGETTS, a lesson planning and analysis tool, and describe
ways in which teachers can use this tool to highlight specific
instructional strategies that support both adaptive motivation and
mathematical understanding. (Contains 2 tables.) (ERIC)
