Math Anxiety integral part of student math achievement
“Math anxiety: An important component of mathematical success” written by Erin Maloney, Jonathan Fugelsang and Daniel Ansari, was posted on the LearnTeachLead blog November 14, 2016.
From their conclusion:
“Math anxiety is pervasive among students, teachers, and parents. Given the very real negative impact that it has on students’ achievement, and the availability of easy-to-implement and cost-effective evidence-based strategies to help combat the negative impacts of math anxiety, it is critical that math anxiety be central to the discussion around why our students are not excelling in math.”
