Project MART: Mathematics Anxiety Reduction Training.
Heller, Barbara R.; And Others
The development of a Project for Mathematics Anxiety Reduction Training (Project MART) is described. This Project was designed as an in-service, staff development program for the City University of New York's instructors. The Project is based on the concept that modifying instructor behavior in the teaching of mathematics will lead to lower student anxiety. In addition, pupils should overcome mathematics avoidance reactions and increase their election of mathematics-based curricula. This study describes and reviews the Project, with MART-type workshops recommended for other community colleges. (MP)
