CeASR/ Psychology Seminar: Mathematics Anxiety: Causes, Consequences and Strategies to Reduce It
Cognition and Behaviour Programme
Speaker: Dr Tom Hunt, Derby University, Dept. of Psychology
In my talk I will discuss research findings that provide insight into the development of maths anxiety, including consideration of the age at which children start to show signs of it and potential ways in which maths anxiety may be maintained or exacerbated. I will also address the specific ways in which maths anxiety might impact arithmetic performance, including attempts to understand the mechanisms that underpin the relationship. Finally, I will note some brief strategies that appear to be effective in reducing maths anxiety.
