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.
Math anxiety can also function similarly to test anxiety — the fact that there’s a right and a wrong answer in math can be intimidating to kids who are already a little anxious or afraid of failure. The way we evaluate math skills is also more intimidating for anxious kids. There are no timed drills in history class, for example.
Any adult can help develop math concepts in children, beginning at a grass roots level by practicing developmentally-appropriate, playful learning. “Mathemize” everyday experiences to ignite children’s curiosity and respond to questions with easy to relate to examples. Allow children to demonstrate competency and build confidence, by adding movement to increase engagement and a big dose of silliness to boost the fun.
