Abstract
According to changing the society rapidly in the 21s1 century, the self-regulated learning ability is considered as an ability of which people should carry on their lives. The purpose of this study was to investigate prospective elementary school teachers in mathematics teaching method class in terms of the following areas: (1) the degree of their abilities shown the lower level factors of motivated strategies for learning such as self-efficacy, intrinsic value, anxiety, cognitive strategy use, and self-regulation (2) relations between factors of motivated strategies for loaming and performance of prospective elementary school teachers The results show that the prospective elementary school teachers showed above the mean value of the motivated strategies for learning and there are positive relations among lower level factors of motivated strategies fur learning except anxiety, positive relation between motivated strategies for learning and achievement. In order to help the prospective elementary school teacher to improve their motivated strategies fur learning in their elementary mathematics teaching method lecture, several methods such as mathematical connections to real world problem, history of mathematics and interview with mathematicians and application of feller's ARCS model to elementary mathematics education are suggested.
