Description - Math for the Anxious by Rosanne Proga
This book is written to provide a practical approach to the problem of maths anxiety. By combining strategies for success with a pain-free introduction to basic maths content, students will overcome their worries and find greater success in their courses. The first two chapters not only explain the sources of maths anxiety, they more importantly outline pragmatic steps students can take to reduce it. In each of the following eight chapters, strategies are implemented for learning a particular topic, such as fractions, that may have frustrated students in the past, but can now be digested and mastered through hints, patient explanations and revelations of how students already encounter the topic on an everyday basis. The final chapter brings all the strategies together and prepares students to encounter future maths topics with new-found confidence and finely tuned techniques at their disposal.
