In-service female teachers' anxieties about mathematics: a reflective study on mathematics classroom practice at a college of education
MetadataShow full item record
The incidence of mathematics anxiety manifesting itself in in-service college students is generally on the increase. Such anxiety does not only affect the mathematical performance of students but also their teaching of the subject. Thus a need exists to investigate measures to alleviate mathematics anxiety as displayed by practicing teachers. It is with these factors in mind that I have embarked upon a study to analyze the role of my teaching practice in the context of mathematics anxiety and learning theories.
