Anxious students perform lower than their abilities.

Math anxiety is a negative emotional reaction to mathematics that can significantly impact academic performance and achievement. Unfortunately, math anxiety is a common experience, reported by 33% of students by the time they reach 15 years old.

**Math anxiety can manifest in different ways and to varying degrees. Common symptoms include:**

- difficulty explaining or discussing math topics and concepts
- negative self-talk - feeling like one is not smart enough or will never be able to understand it
- nervousness in math class or when faced with math problems
- difficulty concentrating, leading to more mistakes
- physical symptoms such as sweating and rapid heartbeat
- difficulty remembering concepts and procedures
- decreased self-esteem or confidence

Math anxiety can stem from various factors, yet with appropriate support, it is possible to overcome it and thrive in mathematics.

** 9-14: Low Anxiety** - Your confidence level appears strong. Your responses indicate minimal to no significant distress or worry related to math-related tasks or situations.

** 15-24: Mild anxiety** - Your anxiety level is manageable. Your responses indicate you experience some occasional worry or nervousness related to math-related tasks or situations.

** 25-34: Moderate Anxiety** - You might benefit from additional support. Your responses indicate you experience more frequent worry or nervousness about math-related tasks or situations, which might impact your math performance or confidence.

** 35-45: High Anxiety** - You would greatly benefit from support. Your responses indicate that you might experience significant distress, fear, or anxiety when faced with math-related tasks or situations which can substantially impact math performance, confidence, and attitude toward mathematics.
