The purpose of this study was to determine if there was a correlation between student motivation and participation in the understanding of physics concepts. Participation of students did increase with the introduction of interactive engagement. Cooperative group work (one type of interactive engagement) did not show any higher increase in learning of the material as compared with lecture format, although students reported experiencing more motivation during interactive engagement.
