Have you ever experienced crippling math anxiety?
by Joan Reissman, Blended Learning Specialist
Have you ever felt that it was too late to learn math? That you were down for the count?
I once had a student who literally trembled every time she tried to do math. When I asked her why, she told me that in her early years she had a teacher who would hit students if they got the wrong answer. This example is extreme, but even without the hitting, fear of getting a wrong answer in front of the class and being ridiculed is very real.
