The problem of this study has been centered around the methods and techniques used in teaching mathematics to a group of seventh grade students of the Fisher High School, Athens, Texas. The problem further presents itself in determining whether certain methods and techniques will help the student gain a better understanding of, and, a greater appreciation for mathematics.

The purpose of the present study is to determine by means of various evaluative instruments the relative merits of certain motivational devices as applied to selected topics in seventh grade mathematics.

The scope of the present study covers the teaching of whole numbers, fractions, decimals, common measures, percentage, graphs, charts, ratios, form, and measurements, on the seventh grade level, as they relate to twenty-five pupils of the Fisher High School.
