Kathryn and Mary--

I book I'd recommend for math anxiety is Managing the Mean Math Blues by C.
Ooten. One thing I especially like that she says is "Anxiety results when
you are required to stay in an uncomfortable situaton where you believe you
have no control." (sorry, I've lost the page number for this reference)
This sentence really spoke to me since I pay a lot of attention to putting
learners in charge of their learning.

This book is for high level readers, so most of my numeracy learners
couldn't read it, but I found many useful ideas for helping reduce math
anxiety in it.

Hello Kathryn, I also work in a correctional setting where you teach to the
needs of the student even though it may not be the teachers forte. I too
would like to learn some strategies in teaching basic math that would reduce
stress levels in learners as well as myself. I believe that there is a math
learner in all of us! Mary

Hello group! My name is Kathryn Baxter, and I have very little in common
with most of you, but I am eager to find out more about your ideas for
making Math less anxiety-producing.
