The myth fueling math anxiety
from Education Week (commentary)
Sarah D. Sparks, a contributor for Education Week, writes: "My 2nd grader finishes his math enrichment, then gleefully creates blank versions for his dad and me to try: a subtraction-based, number-placement logic puzzle, intended to be challenging. My husband withdraws for 10 minutes or so, returns and hands over the completed puzzle. I stare at my blank triangle. 'Mom, aren't you done yet?' my son asks. 'Are you struggling?' A dull pressure starts to thud behind my eyes. 'I'm thinking,' I say, a little too sharply."
