Helping Students Get Past Math Anxiety
Scarpello, Gary
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J1), v82 n6 p34-35 Sep 2007
Math anxiety can begin as early as the fourth grade and peaks in middle school and high school. It can be caused by past classroom experiences, parental influences, and remembering poor past math performance. Math anxiety can cause students to avoid challenging math courses and may limit their career choices. It is important for teachers, parents and students to be aware of the effects of math anxiety so that if a student is affected, the student can receive the support necessary to lessen or eliminate it. In this article, the author discusses ways to help students get past math anxiety.
