How teachers can help students overcome Maths Anxiety
Struggling with feelings of anxiety and worry when taking a Math test or doing Math homework is something many adults and children can relate to. What they’re probably unaware of is that there’s actually a term for it: Maths Anxiety. It’s such a common problem that the Maths Anxiety Trust was set up to spread awareness about it. Most of us simply chalk it up to ‘not being good’ at the subject, but it isn’t necessarily the case- it could be the anxiety that’s holding us back. According to a recent article in The Guardian, “A poll for the trust, conducted last year by Ipsos Mori, found more than a third of 15- to 24- year-olds feel anxious when shown a maths problem. The same applies to one in five British adults.” “Teachers must also help pupils overcome difficulties and never allow them to feel like they are no good at the subject. It’s that feeling of failure that can lead to maths anxiety and young people dropping the subject and, in so doing, limiting their future career prospects in the STEM industries.”
