The Sum of All Fears: The Effects of Math Anxiety on Math Achievement in Fifth Grade Students and the Implications for School Counselors
Ruff, Sarah E.; Boes, Susan R.
Georgia School Counselors Association Journal, v21 n1 Nov 2014
Low math achievement is a recurring weakness in many students. Math anxiety is a persistent and significant theme to math avoidance and low achievement. Causes for math anxiety include social, cognitive, and academic factors. Interventions to reduce math anxiety are limited as they exclude the expert skills of professional school counselors to help overcome this nervousness. The effectiveness of a school counseling small group intervention to reduce math anxiety and increase achievement in fifth grade participants is presented.
