Abstract: Students struggling in their mathematical studies in the department of Technology in universities of applied sciences have been a concern for several years. In 2010 and 2011, new students in Saimaa UAS were asked to fill in two surveys concerning their motivational and self-regulation aspects. Based on these surveys and the proficiency test held at the beginning of their studies, we formed profiles to predict their progress in math courses. Furthermore, teaching methods were developed to support motivated but weak students in their mathematical studies. This article will describe the process of profiling and how well the progress could be predicted by student’s own conception of studying habits. It also describes new teaching methods used and their influence on progress.
Keywords: motivation, self-regulation, self-confidence
