Math Anxiety Case Studies: A Beyond Crossroads Companion
Peskoff, Fred
AMATYC Review, v28 n2 p65-67 Spr 2007
The case study approach is commonly used in the fields of law, medicine, and business administration to help apply theory to practice. This approach is equally useful in the teaching and learning of mathematics since various categories of coping strategies used to alleviate math anxiety become more meaningful when they are used to assist "real" students. A number of case studies were developed to apply the coping strategies presented in Beyond Crossroads to students who have found themselves at the "crossroads" between success and failure. Each case represents a student at the author's institution who is confronted with a potentially stressful situation when attempting to study mathematics
