An online talk on mathematics anxiety.

Mathematics is often perceived as a difficult subject by many students, parents and teachers alike. Difficulties with the subject are most often attributed to cognitive factors (lack of ability, preparedness, practice, and knowledge).

However, it is increasingly recognized in psychology and education that some students have serious negative emotional reaction to mathematics, termed “mathematics anxiety”. Mathematics anxiety can lead to performance difficulties and/or can become an obstacle that discourages students, especially girls, from further mathematics training even if their performance is good. The talk will discuss recent developments in research about mathematics anxiety.
