Mathematics anxiety

3:00pm-4:00pm on Saturday 3 April

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 27th March. For events on or after 28th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

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 developments in research about mathematics anxiety.

Booking/Registration is: UNAVAILABLE

The talk will be available to watch from 15.00 on 3 April here:
