Blazer, Christie – Research Services, Miami-Dade County Public Schools, 2011

Approximately 93 percent of Americans indicate that they experience some level of math anxiety. Math anxiety is defined as negative emotions that interfere with the solving of mathematical problems. Studies have found that some students who perform poorly on math assessments actually have a full understanding of the concepts being tested; however,…

Choi-Koh, Sang S.; Ryoo, Byeong G. – Educational Psychology, 2019

This article investigated how mathematic anxiety (MA) of Korean middle school students could be reduced by comparing analytically their cognitive neuroscience and questionnaire results. We developed a three-hour Complex Treatment Program (CTP) on quadratic functions for the study. In the summer of 2016, we collected data of the pre and post MA…

Jameson, Molly M. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2013

Math anxiety has been historically overlooked in samples of children. This may be due in part to the lack of appropriate tools to measure anxiety in young children. The current exploratory study reports on the development and examination of reliability, validity, and factor structure of a new tool to measure math anxiety in young children. The…

Bilgin, Enes Abdurrahman – Education Quarterly Reviews, 2021

All over the world and especially in Turkey, the success level regarding math is well below the desired rate. The main reasons for this situation are negative attitudes and anxiety towards math. It is observed that the students and the teachers experience anxiety about the Arithmetic Operations, which is one of the beginning subjects of math. On…

Hollingsworth, Heidi L.; Knight-McKenna, Mary – Journal of Early Childhood Teacher Education, 2018

Children's early numeracy knowledge predicts later academic performance, yet many children do not experience optimal math instruction. This study investigated the impact of academic service-learning (ASL) in an early childhood teacher preparation math course and answered the following research question: Was the ASL experience effective in…

Smail, Linda – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017

Mathematics is the foundation of all sciences, but most students have problems learning math. Although students' success in life related to their success in learning, many would not take a math course unless it is their university's core requirements. Multiple reasons exist for students' poor performance in mathematics, but one prevalent variable…

Hall, Laura K. – ProQuest LLC, 2019

This study was designed to determine what change the i-Ready math tutorial videos had on math performance, self-efficacy, and math anxiety with middle school math students. In addition, the study determined the student perception of the effectiveness of the i-Ready math tutorial videos. The purpose was to help educators identify a specific tool…

Spaniol, Scott R. – ProQuest LLC, 2017

Research suggests that student success in mathematics is positively correlated to math self-efficacy and negatively correlated to math anxiety. At a Hispanic serving community college in the Midwest, developmental math students had a lower pass rate than did college-level math students, but the role of math self-efficacy and math anxiety on these…

Skaalvik, Einar M.; Federici, Roger A.; Wigfield, Allan; Tangen, Truls N. – Social Psychology of Education: An International Journal, 2017

Relations between 8th and 10th grade students' perceptions of classroom goal structures, task values, anxiety, help-seeking behavior, and effort in mathematics classes were examined. The authors investigated whether the associations between perceived goal structures and anxiety, help-seeking behavior, and effort are mediated through students'…

Zirk-Sadowski, Jan; Lamptey, Charlotte; Devine, Amy; Haggard, Mark; Szucs, Dénes – Developmental Science, 2014

We studied whether the origins of math anxiety can be related to a biologically supported framework of stress induction: (un)controllability perception, here indicated by self-reported independent efforts in mathematics. Math anxiety was tested in 182 children (8- to 11-year-olds). "Latent factor modeling" was used to test hypotheses on…

Kesici, Ahmet; Bindak, Recep – International Journal of Educational Methodology, 2019

This research was conducted in order to determine whether math anxiety was effective in the selection of secondary school students. This research, in which the mixed method was adopted, was conducted in a secondary school at Siirt. The participants (157 pupils) were determined by convenient sampling method from the four different classes (two 5th…

Krinzinger, Helga; Kaufmann, Liane; Willmes, Klaus – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2009

Mathematical learning disabilities (MLDs) are often associated with math anxiety, yet until now, very little is known about the causal relations between calculation ability and math anxiety during early primary school years. The main aim of this study was to longitudinally investigate the relationship between calculation ability, self-reported…
