Overcome maths anxiety

Thu, Apr 06, 2017

Many parents report that their child has been doing well at maths but suddenly finds a topic in school difficult. Further exploration usually reveals that a big stumbling block for many students in primary school is fractions. In order to approach fractions, a student needs a solid grasp of the four operations on which all maths is built – addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Without fluency in these basics, it is much much harder to tackle fractions (or decimals and percentages).

If students can recall the number facts “off the top of their heads” then the more complex maths skills become so much easier. Often a student just needs a simple explanation of a particular maths skill, and if he/she has the required proficiency in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, then progress is that much simpler. The reasons that children are unsure about some maths topic can vary – the teacher goes too quickly, they may have missed that lesson, or they may need more practice. Some pupils need a little practice; some need a lot. The key is that practice in nearly all cases leads to fluency and increased confidence.
