Learning mathematics

According to an item in Scientific American improving in mathematics has more to do with internal motivation than intelligence.
"People who were driven by their own interest improved their math skills the most. IQ or external factors such as parental pressure or grades didn't create a lasting boost"
"...effective studying techniques and motivation, not IQ, predicted who had most improved their math skills by 10th grade."
