“Teachers and too much homework contribute to maths anxiety”
Level of maths anxiety within same school or classroom found to predict
individuals’ maths achievement (The Guardian 8th February 2022)

This Guardian article reported on a new large scale study (1,175,515 students)  into maths anxiety conducted by Dr Nathan Lau and colleagues at University of Western Ontario

Professor Margaret Brown OBE, Emeritus Professor of Mathematics Education Kings College London and President of Maths Anxiety Trust, responded:
“It shows for the first time that maths anxiety is not just an individual phenomenon which affects maths attainment, but it also strongly correlates with other contextual factors like the pupils’ confidence in their teacher, teachers’ own confidence in their maths, and the amount of homework and parental involvement in completing it.”

WHAT ARE YOUR VIEWS? AS A TEACHER DO YOU SUFFER FROM MATHS ANXIETY?  DO YOU FEEL SUPPORTED?
