Math Anxiety is Real!

Have you ever avoided math because you think you can’t do it?

So many of my adult education students (many of whom have been out of the classroom for a long while) are afraid of and underestimate their ability to succeed in math class.

“Success” is a tricky word; it doesn’t necessarily mean gettimg the correct answer every time. It’s really about problem-solving.

Not only can you learn, but you come to the classroom with a lot of math-based life experience that will help you move along. For example, if you cook, work construction, follow a budget, estimate costs at the store, read price tags, have a bank account, make sure your paycheck is correct or apply for federal aid you are doing math!

Many students find that once they start reviewing the basics,

they remember a lot.

Dive in and give it a try. You might surprise yourself!
