View 1 considers the role of achievement on emotions: Poor math performance can trigger math anxiety in similar future situations. This view, known as Deficit Theory, is supported by longitudinal studies and studies of children with math learning disabilities. View 2 considers the role of emotions on achievement: Math anxiety may affect future math performance.
This view, known as the Debilitating Anxiety Model, is derived from studies manipulating anxiety and observing its influence on math performance. It considers that "anxiety reduces performance by affecting pre-performance, performance, and retrieval of information" Introduction section, para.
View 3 considers a bidirectional relationship between views 1 and 2. The mixture of evidence may suggest a bidirectional relationship between MA and maths performance, in which poor performance can trigger MA in some individuals and MA can further reduce performance, in a vicious cycle.
Nevertheless, more longitudinal and mixed-methods research is required to provide greater understanding into this relationship and more direct support for the Reciprocal Theory" The Reciprocal Theory section, para.
Biological Evidence In addition to outward behavior manifestations of math anxiety, there is biological evidence of its existence.
Venod Menon of the Stanford University School of Medicine, "Math anxiety is an under-studied phenomenon, which still lacks formally established diagnostic criteria Menon and his team of researchers used brain scans in their study of 46 second- and third-grade students with low and high math anxiety, and found that "Children with high math anxiety were less accurate and significantly slower at solving math problems than children with low math anxiety.
Results may lead to new strategies for treatment of it, as in ways suggested for treatment of other anxieties and phobias. What teaching strategies help minimize math anxiety?AP® English Literature and Composition Free-Response Questions.
