here are a number of reasons why math might feel intimidating for students. There’s the idea already mentioned that math is for geniuses. Benjamin Braun, a math professor and blog editor for the American Mathematical Society, reports that when he polled the students in one of his upper-level math courses, over half admitted to fearing that they weren’t actually any good at math. This despite the fact that they were almost all math majors or minors who had already taken two semesters of calculus as a prerequisite for his class. He said this experience repeats itself every year.
Researchers are also interested in how math anxiety develops. Although research has shown that math anxiety and math abilities are related , no study so far has been able to tell us which comes first. In other words, we do not know if being bad at math causes math anxiety, or if having math anxiety makes people bad at math.
You can also consider making math part of your bedtime routine. You might want to use Bedtime Math or a similar resource for ideas. Every day the Bedtime Math website and app features a new child-friendly math anecdote and related questions to pose to children of different ages and abilities.
