Study: Math anxiety is linked to genetics
from Education Week
Math anxiety can be explained, at least in part, by genetic factors, according to a recent study published in the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry. There's been plenty of buzz on the topic of math anxiety over the last few years. Studies have shown it can lead to decreased working memory, low performance, and avoidance of math pursuits. Much of the research on math anxiety's causes has focused on early exposure to negative math experiences.
