Williams, K. R.; Wasson, S. R.; Barrett, A.; Greenall, R. F.; Jones, S. R.; Bailey, E. G. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2021
Hardy-Weinberg (HW) equilibrium and its accompanying equations are widely taught in introductory biology courses, but high math anxiety and low math proficiency have been suggested as two barriers to student success. Population-level Punnett squares have been presented as a potential tool for HW equilibrium, but actual data from classrooms have…

Finlayson, Maureen – Improving Schools, 2014
In today's educational systems, students of all levels of education experience math anxiety. Furthermore, math anxiety is frequently linked to poor achievement in mathematics. The purpose of this study is to examine the causes of math anxiety and to explore strategies which pre-service teachers have identified to overcome math anxiety. The…

Yi, Hyun Sook; Na, Wooyoul – Asia Pacific Journal of Education, 2020
Maths anxiety has been of great concern for many educators and educational policymakers because of its adverse effects on students' maths performance and career path. Various empirical studies have been conducted to explore the factors predicting maths anxiety, and they have typically been based on a limited set of pre-specified variables, such as…

Choe, Kyoung Whan; Jenifer, Jalisha B.; Rozek, Christopher S.; Berman, Marc G.; Beilock, Sian L. – Grantee Submission, 2019
Math anxiety -- negative feelings towards math -- is hypothesized to be associated with the avoidance of math-related activities such as taking math courses and pursuing STEM careers. Surprisingly, however, there is little experimental evidence for the math anxiety- avoidance link. Such evidence is important for formulating how to break this…

Berkowitz, Talia; Gibson, Dominic J.; Levine, Susan C. – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2021
Differences in children's math knowledge emerge as early as the start of kindergarten, and persist throughout schooling. Previous research implicates the importance of early parent number talk in the development of math competency. Yet we understand little about the factors that relate to variation in early parent number talk. The current study…

Henslee, Amber M.; Klein, Brandi A. – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2017
The objective of this study was to investigate whether brief guided imagery could provide a short-term reduction in math anxiety and improve math performance. Undergraduates (N = 581) were screened for math anxiety, and the highest and lowest quartiles were recruited to participate in a lab-based study. Participants were assigned to a brief guided…

Ramirez, Gerardo; Hooper, Sophia Yang; Kersting, Nicole B.; Ferguson, Ronald; Yeager, David – AERA Open, 2018
Elementary school teachers' math anxiety has been found to play a role in their students' math achievement. The current study addresses the role of teacher math anxiety on ninth-grade students' math achievement and the mediating factors underlying this relationship. Using data from the National Mindset Study, we find that higher teacher math…

Sorvo, Riikka; Koponen, Tuire; Viholainen, Helena; Aro, Tuija; Räikkönen, Eija; Peura, Pilvi; Dowker, Ann; Aro, Mikko – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
Background: Children have been found to report and demonstrate math anxiety as early as the first grade. However, previous results concerning the relationship between math anxiety and performance are contradictory, with some studies establishing a correlation between them while others do not. These contradictory results might be related to varying…

Samuel, Tashana S.; Warner, Jared – Community College Journal of Research and Practice, 2021
Math anxiety is a debilitating problem that affects many community college students. Neuropsychological research suggests that negative rumination when anticipating math situations substantially exhausts working memory load, contributes to execution anxiety, which interferes with learning and performance. Studies have shown that improving the…

Milovanovic, Ilija; Branovacki, Bojan – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2021
Previous research of math anxiety (MA) was largely concerned with the population of high school students. Although there are findings on the existence of MA at early primary school age, a very small number of questionnaires or scales, which have been validated in several cultures and can be used in research with children of this age, have been…

Gunderson, Elizabeth A.; Park, Daeun; Maloney, Erin A.; Beilock, Sian L.; Levine, Susan C. – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2018
School-entry math achievement is a strong predictor of math achievement through high school. We asked whether reciprocal relations among math achievement, math anxiety, and entity motivational frameworks (believing that ability is fixed and a focus on performance) can help explain these persistent individual differences. We assessed 1st and 2nd…

Ölmez, Ibrahim Burak; Ölmez, Safiye Bahar – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2019
The purpose of this study was to investigate the psychometric characteristics of the Math Anxiety Scale (MANX; Erol 1989, Unpublished master thesis, Bogazici University) with data collected from 952 middle school students in Turkey. The Rasch Rating Scale model was used to examine the MANX at the item level. The results revealed that although the…

Ciftci, S. Koza – Online Submission, 2019
In this study, the effect of mathematics teacher candidates' locus of control on math anxiety was tested, along with the effects of gender, achievement and class level moderators. The study was carried out according to a causal design in which locus of control was taken as an independent variable, while math anxiety was taken as the dependent…
