One of the most
important, yet little acknowleged, barriers to mathematics achievement
is the feeling of frustration and helplessness that our students experience
on an occasional or, for some, a regular basis. This fear and anxiety
leads to negative attitudes towards mathematics, inhibits academic achievement
and limits our students choices both in school and careers.
In this workshop, we will examine what research has uncovered about the connection between mathematics and the emotions, and will answer the following questions:
This full-day workshop (9 am- 2 pm) is specifically designed for K - 12 educators who wish to enhance the quality of their instruction by learning how to diagnose and treat mathematics related anxieties in ways that will ensure long term success for their students. It is especially suitable for specialists working with children who have disabilities specific to mathematics
