Overcoming Math Anxiety

Sheila Tobias

Publisher: W. W. Norton & Company

Format: Paperback

The new edition retains the author's pungent analysis of what makes math “hard” for otherwise successful people and how women, more than men, become victims of a gendered view of math. It has been substantially updated to incorporate new research on what we know and don't know about “sex differences” in brain organization and function, and it has been enlarged to include problems, puzzles, and strategies tried out in hundreds of math-anxiety workshops Tobias and her colleagues have sponsored. The author sees “math anxiety” as a political issue. So long as people believe themselves to be disabled in mathematics and do not rise up and confront the social and pedagogical origins of their disabilities, they will be denied “math mental health” - the willingness to learn the math you need when you need it. In an ever more technical society, that can make the difference between low and high self-esteem, failure and success.
