What Is Math Anxiety?           

One definition of math anxiety is “the panic, helplessness, paralysis, and mental disorganization that arises among some people when they are required to solve a mathematical problem”. (Source:  Tobias and Weissbrod (1980)).  Math anxiety is a serious and pervasive problem, especially in the community-college setting.  Students may experience math anxiety in many forms and degrees, from “freezing up” during a math exam, to attempting to avoid anything having to do with numbers.   Symptoms may be physical or psychological and may include (but not be limited to) any of the following:

Physical:  Nausea, shortness-of-breath, sweating, heart palpitations, increased blood pressure.

 Psychological:  Memory loss, paralysis of thought, loss of self-confidence, negative self-talk, math avoidance, isolation (thinking you are the only one who feels this way).
