The present research is aimed to know the effect of the application of the token economy method on mathematics learning motivation. The experiment was set as the research method. The variables in this study were the token economy method as an independent variable, learning motivation as the dependent variable, and learning achievement as the control variable. The subjects used in this study were grade seven students in one of the junior high schools in Sengkang, one of the districts in Indonesia. Based on the descriptive analysis, it is found that in general, before being given the treatment, both the experimental group and the control group have a low motivation to learn mathematics. Furthermore, after being given the treatment, it can be suggested that the subjects who are given the token economy method have higher learning motivation compared to the subjects who are not given the token economy method.
