Abstract

Based on previous research on contextual influence on student engagement and guided by self-determination theory, the present study investigated the association of perceived parental warmth with math engagement among Chinese students. Data were gathered from 1132 students (577 girls) in Grades 9 and 11 from two secondary schools in Hunan province, China. Structural equation models revealed that it was through the mediation of psychological need satisfaction and math self-efficacy that perceived parental warmth associated with adolescents math engagement. Implications for parenting practice are discussed.
