- 1. Math anxiety and Dyscalculia By Shreya Patil Class 10th
- 2. Mathematics is a necessary skill that people use throughout their lives, such as when they travel, use money, or keep track of time. Therefore, mathematics is an important skill to learn at school. But many students, adults and sometimes teachers themselves are unable to understand it. Especially for students.
- 4. What is math anxiety? Math is mathematics and anxiety is a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease about something with an uncertain outcome.
- 5. Youare not alone. Math anxiety is more than just a feeling of nervousness. Nervousness is a sensible reaction to a situation that is actually scary. In contrast, anxiety might not make sense. This means that a person may feel anxious even though he or she knows that there is really no reason to feel anxious. Also, anxiety can cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart or sweating. Usually, people who have math anxiety believe that they are bad at math and because of this, they do not like math. These feelings lead them to avoid situations in which they have to do math. Children with math anxiety often have poor math skills.
- 7. Causes of math anxiety ● One idea is that math anxiety develops in students who experience certain kinds of social situations that influence the student’s thoughts or feelings. This means that the student’s emotions, opinions, or behaviors are affected by things that other people say or do. ● One study that gives an example of this showed that teachers with high math anxiety were more likely to have students with poorer math achievement at the end of the school year. ● This study suggests that the way the teacher acted somehow affected the math ability of the students.
- 8. Math anxiety is curable • Math anxiety is not for life. • It can be solved with simple things like Writing down thoughts and feelings beforehand which makes people feel less nervous when taking tests. If student wrote down their thoughts and feelings, those feelings will not occupy working memory while the student completes a math test. Some breathing exercises help to calm them down before a math test.
- 10. Dyscalculia is a learning disability in math. People with dyscalculia have trouble with math at many levels. They often struggle with key concepts like bigger vs. smaller. And they can have a hard time doing basic math problems and more abstract math.
- 11. People don’t outgrow dyscalculia. Kids who have a hard time with math may continue to struggle with it as adults. But there are strategies that can help them improve math skills and manage the challenges. Difficulty with math happens at all levels. It can be as hard to learn addition as it is to learn algebra. Basic concepts like quantities can also be a challenge. That’s why dyscalculia can make it hard to do everyday tasks. Cooking, grocery shopping, and getting places on time all involve these basic math skills, which are known as number sense .
- 12. Some people overlook dyscalculia as just being “bad at math.” But it’s a real challenge that’s based in biology.
- 13. Some of the causes ● Genes and heredity: Dyscalculia tends to run in families. Research shows that genetics may also play a part in problems with math. ● Brain development: This has to do with how the brain is structured and how it functions in areas that are linked to learning skills.
