Overcoming math anxiety

This new edition retains the author's analysis of what makes math "hard" for otherwise successful people and how women, more than men, become victims of a gendered view of math. It has been updated to incorporate new research on what we know and don't know about "sex differences" in brain organization and function, and it includes problems, puzzles, and strategies tried out in hundreds of math-anxiety workshops Tobias and her colleagues have sponsored. The author sees "math anxiety" as a political issue. As long as people believe themselves to be disabled in mathematics and do not rise up and confront the origins of their disabilities, they will be denied "math mental health"--The willingness to learn the math you need when you need it. In an ever more technical society, that can make the difference between low and high self-esteem, failure and success.--Publisher description.
