Using three mathematical models, this study aims to optimize students’ motivation for success in courses of mathematics at universities. The uniqueness of this study is crystalized in the novel graphical visualization of three models, which are integrated to analyze certain factors that help in optimizing students’ motivation for mathematical success. The proposed models will benefit students, educators, administrators of higher education, and societies around the world. A quantitative approach is used to design the research, which involved 366 female and 319 male students in different mathematics courses. The results show that the third, second, and first models are the top three in order. The third model accounts for 71.3% of the shift in the motivation for mathematical success. The difference in the motivation for mathematical success is explained by 66.3% in the second model and 65.0% in the first model.
