Top Tips for reducing Maths Anxiety
Enter Positive Pets Competition Below this Blog!
➕✖️➗➖🟰It’s Maths Anxiety Day 2022 and we want to share our Positivity Pets Give Away and give some Top Tips for Reducing Maths Anxiety in the Classroom.
Expressing thoughts and feelings before the lesson/test/exam/maths situation is a good start to beginning to relieve the anxiety. Younger students can talk to their Positivity Pet. Write short compositions, draw pictures in paint (or pencil), go outside for some fresh air-whatever works best with what time constraints you're working under!
Research suggests that there is a very close link between anxiety and excitement. Therefore, you can use trickery to trick your brain to be in a positive mindset! Before you take any important lessons or exams, it's helpful to encourage your student in positive self-talk such as saying "I am going do well on this!"  Students could talk to their Positivity Pet.
Breathing practices can help to improve the emotional repercussions linked with Maths Anxiety.  Check out the video from the Dyscalculia-Academy Mascots Amazing Adam and Inspirational Isla on the use of the EFT Technique here.
