Because math anxiety affects many people and is related to poor math skills, it is important to understand when and how math anxiety first appears, what is happening in the brain when people are feeling anxious about math, and how to best help people with math anxiety.
Many parents have a fixed belief in their own math abilities. They may feel uncomfortable with math themselves, let alone how to develop the skills in a young child. Teaching math theories to children can be facilitated by understanding how they learn and make sense of math. Current studies reveal preschoolers are capable of grasping how to count, add and subtract, if questions are asked in the right way.
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.
