Math Anxiety

Math anxiety can be defined as “a feeling of tension, apprehension, or fear that interferes with math performance” (Ashcraft, 2002). Math anxiety is very common in classes and can be a barrier to students reaching their full potential while also limiting their career paths (Ashcraft& Krause, 2007; Tobias 1993). It is a complex issue that is intertwined with a myriad of other issues. The research our team is involved with focuses on two primary factors: teacher practices/classroom experiences and working memory (Courtesy of Luther Duncan).
