Abstract:It is said that many students have fear, stress, and anxiety when it comes to learning and doing math. (Broadkey, 2015) Through research there are many different strategies that teachers can implement to ensure that students do not have negative thoughts and feelings about learning math. When teachers use tools and strategies to make math more inviting to students, they will learn to love learning math and not see it as a subject they cannot do. When student engagement and positivity is used in the classroom, it will lessen the worry, stress, and anxiety that students may face when they learn math. Teachers can post positive quotes/posters around the classroom, give out student praise and acknowledgement, build open and positive relationships with students, and most importantly make it known that mistakes are okay! Learning from our mistakes only makes us stronger learners. By creating this type of mindset and environment, it will get students engaged and excited to learn math. They will be more open to learning math without the worry of failure or being the best at it.
