Notes

Abstract: This paper describes the current state of research and understanding of math anxiety, expounds upon this information with independent research conducted at UNT, evaluates this research, and suggests a plan for improved results in mathematics education. The independent research utilizes a simple survey to assess the level of anxiety of MATH 1010 students at the University of North Texas. MATH 1010 was chosen because it is not-for-credit course that students who do not meet proficiency requirements for university-level math classes must take. Based on the 283 surveys utilized in the study as well as other research, it is clear that math anxiety is a real phenomenon with real consequences. More long-term studies will be required before the most effective abatement strategies can be identified and implemented.
