Where does this anxiety start? One factor may be that children haven’t developed positive associations with math before they start school, they way they do with reading. While parents read with children and help them develop reading skills, doing math for fun with parents at home is almost unheard of. When children encounter math at school, the concepts are often entirely new, and the only preparation they will have received are the messages they might have picked up from others, like the idea that math is really hard, or girls aren’t good at math.
Having a mnemonic is a good first step, but as soon as you get a copy of your test, or as soon as you begin working on homework for the night, it’s a good idea to write down the facts or equations that you will need to remember. That way you can refer back to them if you are feeling confused or need reassurance. “You’re not having to keep in mind all those procedures if you write them out on a piece of paper, so you can actually reduce some of the working memory load,” says Dr. Pagirsky, “which in turn can reduce some anxiety about it as well.”
Many parents can easily read a book to a 3-year-old, but how about engaging a preschooler in math activities? Current research shows that fostering math skills at a young age is as important as the ability to read. Children with a strong foundation of math skills in early years perform better across all subject areas, including reading. In fact, reading and math capabilities are closely linked partners in academic achievement and improved cognition later in life.
