Transforming Math Anxiety to Math Agility
Math anxiety is, nowadays, a well-known phenomenon. This book contains the observations, research, and experiments of a concerned math teacher who, for over three decades, worked with students experiencing math anxiety. The book contains discussions and views by experts about math anxiety, causes of math anxiety, types of math anxiety, and various teaching strategies. We have included a careful study of some rough spots of math and how to make them easy and understandable to students. The book also contains selected examples of cases and how we tried to help the afflicted person. Through these examples, we have tried to reveal the nature of the problem and practical ways to solve them. To make the text lively and interesting, we have included opinion and reactions of the students, in their own words, to our approach.
