DOMINIQUE CICCARELLI – EDUCATION EXPERT FROM KUMON NORTH AMERICA - TIPS TO DEAL WITH MATH ANXIETY
CRUNCH TIME: HELP YOUR CHILD STAY AHEAD OF THE CURVE
As students are back in full swing at school, some may feel the stress and pressure that comes along with it. The thought of a test can make even the most confident student feel stressed, but for some, the feeling goes beyond a little worry. It has been shown that many students deal with “math anxiety”. And often times, that math anxiety starts at home. Research shows that children of highly math-anxious parents were more likely to develop math anxiety themselves when their parents helped with homework. Some studies show that 10 to 20 percent of adults experience math anxiety.
Education expert Dominique Ciccarelli will be available for interviews to give advice to parents on how to lessen math anxiety. Instilling confidence early is one key factor. Math skills at kindergarten entry can predict later math achievement.
