David, Amir; Rubinsten, Orly; Berkovich-Ohana, Aviva – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2022
Math anxiety has received increasing focus in recent years, yet the causes for developing math-anxiety remain unclear. Whereas previous research focused on physiological/environmental causes, we examine the link between math-anxiety, dispositional mindfulness, and self-centeredness (operationalized as self-prioritization and decentering). The…

Soysal, Dilek; Bani-Yaghoub, Majid; Riggers-Piehl, Tiffani A. – Pedagogical Research, 2022
The relationships between math anxiety and other variables such as students' motivation and confidence have been extensively studied. The main purpose of the present study was to employ a machine learning approach to provide a deeper understanding of variables associated with math anxiety. Specifically, we applied classification and regression…

Kiss, Allyson J.; Vukovic, Rose – Psychology in the Schools, 2021
Little is known about how math anxiety in parents may relate to engagement in their children's education (i.e., parent involvement, parent educational expectations) or children's math outcomes (i.e., child math achievement and child math anxiety). The current exploratory study examined these relations between parents and their fifth grade…

Wang, Lu – Educational Psychology Review, 2020
In this review, findings from studies investigating gender differences in spatial ability, math anxiety, and math achievement, the relationship between spatial ability and math anxiety, between spatial ability and math achievement, and between math anxiety and math achievement are synthesized. As a result of this synthesis, a sequential mediation…

Dove, Jane; Montague, Jane; Hunt, Thomas E. – International Online Journal of Primary Education, 2021
Primary school teachers are important in children's learning of mathematics, and maths anxiety development has been partly attributed to children's classroom experiences (Das & Das, 2013). Maths anxiety was explored in UK primary school teachers, with a view to understanding its development and impact. Data from four semi-structured individual…

Szczygiel, Monika – Social Psychology of Education: An International Journal, 2020
The study investigated the relationship between math anxiety in parents and teachers and math anxiety and math achievement in first- to third-grade children. The results indicate that math anxiety in fathers (but not mothers and teachers) is associated with math anxiety in first-grade children and third-grade girls. Math anxiety in mothers and…

Szczygiel, Monika – Issues in Educational Research, 2020
Math anxiety is considered a predictor of mathematical achievement, but little is known about its characteristics in young children. In a longitudinal study of first to second grade children, the relationships between gender, general and math anxiety, and math achievement were tested. First, the results indicate that girls in comparison to boys…

Szczygiel, Monika – International Electronic Journal of Elementary Education, 2020
Although interest in math anxiety in young children has recently increased, the results of previous studies on math anxiety correlates are inconsistent. The article presents the results of two studies conducted among early school-age learners (6-11 years) where the Math Anxiety Questionnaire for Children (MAQC) was used. The results indicate that…

Pantoja, Nancy; Schaeffer, Marjorie W.; Rozek, Christopher S.; Beilock, Sian L.; Levine, Susan C. – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2020
Math anxiety negatively predicts young children's math achievement. While some researchers have suggested that math anxiety may stem from poor math ability, others have argued that math anxiety occurs at all levels of math ability. An important question is whether math anxiety predicts math achievement over and above foundational math skills. We…

Retanal, Fraulein; Johnston, Nichole B.; Di Lonardo Burr, Sabrina M.; Storozuk, Andie; DiStefano, Michela; Maloney, Erin A. – Education Sciences, 2021
Previous research has shown that math homework help of higher-math-anxious parents impedes children's math learning and facilitates the development of math anxiety. In the present study, we explored a possible explanation for this phenomenon by examining the relations between parents' math anxiety, their math homework-helping styles (i.e.,…

Young, Erica Slate; Dyess, Sarah Roller – Mathematics Teacher Educator, 2021
Prospective and practicing elementary teachers have historically demonstrated anxiety about mathematics, which can affect their mathematics teaching and their students' math anxiety. Yet, developing productive dispositions prior to teacher preparation programs is rarely addressed in the research. We propose mindset messaging in mathematics courses…

Tomasetto, Carlo; Morsanyi, Kinga; Guardabassi, Veronica; O'Connor, Patrick A. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Whereas some evidence exists that math anxiety may interfere with math performance from the very beginning of primary school, no study to date has attempted to investigate whether math anxiety may also interfere with early math learning (i.e., the encoding of new math knowledge) and not only with recalling already mastered contents in test…

Kamour, Mimas; Altakhayneh, Bahjat – International Journal of Curriculum and Instruction, 2021
This study investigated the impact of a counseling program based on social emotional learning in reducing math anxiety in middle school students. The sample consisted of 207 males and females from 7th and 8th grade students deliberately selected from Jordanian private schools, and randomly distributed equally into two groups: the experimental…

Güner, Pinar; Gökçe, Semirhan – Journal of Educational Research, 2021
The purpose of this study was to investigate the interplays among the critical thinking disposition, cognitive flexibility, math anxiety and math achievement with structural equation modeling and determine the degree of the mediating effect of math anxiety in primary, middle and high schools. Within the scope, we also focused on the predicting…
