Understanding the origins and experience of mathematics anxiety in primary and secondary school pupils

Some children and adults suffer from mathematics anxiety, a debilitating emotional reaction that ranges from feelings of mild tension to strong fear. This study will provide an in-depth understanding of the emotional roots of mathematics anxiety in primary and secondary school children, and raise awareness among teachers, parents and psychologists. The results will enable the team to identify triggers and to understand coping mechanisms and the interaction of anxiety and performance. This will help to determine how mathematics anxiety can be avoided, how existing anxiety can be alleviated and how positive attitudes towards maths can be promoted.
