Subject: Math Anxiety

i believe that maths anxiety is not the result of todays' activities.
the weaknesses in maths performance could be blamed for the poor
mathematical background that a person may have had, together with the
negative comments that could be showered on to him/her.

as to overcome this, positive reinforcement could be provided to the
child in informing him/her that mathematics in not tough...it could be
fun. prove the fun to the child by involving maths with games and
other fuf filled activities. in doing so, you will be assisting in
removing the negative stamina that could be on the child with regard
to maths.

happy dealing with maths.
