Eric.ed.gov – Math Anxiety: A Research Report.

eric.ed.gov har udgivet:

Presented are the following reports: (1) Math Anxiety: Real and Complex; (2) Math Anxiety and Middle School Students; (3) Math Anxiety and College Freshmen; (4) Math Anxiety and Elementary Teachers; and (5) Math Anxiety: Conclusions, Discussions, and Remedies. The studies attempt to answer questions regarding mathematics anxiety: (1) what is it, (2) who has it, (3) why do people have it, and (4) what can be done to prevent or cure this anxiety? Anxiety was measured by a standardized rating scale and information on related variables was determined by a standardized test and an investigator-developed questionnaire. Findings are presented separately for each study. Among the conclusions are: (1) group membership has little impact on a person’s anxiety unless the group membership reflects actual mathematics performance or an attitude towards mathematics; (2) persons with high anxiety perceive their mathematics skills as less than their other academic skills and generally will not like mathematics or enjoy teaching it; (3) motivation and successful experiences have high degrees of association with mathematics anxiety and great impact on successful completion of mathematics tasks; and (4) performance of a task and teaching of a skill are not necessarily equivalent in creating anxiety for a particular individual. A model of a mathematics anxiety reduction seminar is included. (MP)

Jeg er ansat som adjunkt hos Læreruddannelsen i Jelling, hvor jeg underviser i matematik, specialiseringsmodulet teknologiforståelse, praktik m.m. Jeg har tidligere været ansat som pædagogisk konsulent i matematik og tysk hos UCL ved Center for Undervisningsmidler (CFU) i Vejle og lærer i udskolingen (7.-9. klasse) på Lyshøjskolen i Kolding. Jeg er ejer af og driver bl.a. hjemmesiderne www.lærklokken.dk og www.iundervisning.dk, ggbkursus.dk og er tidligere fagredaktør på matematik på emu.dk. Jeg går ind for, at læring skal være let tilgængelig og i størst mulig omfang gratis at benytte.
