not a math person? Poppycock!
When you look at the research in this article, it's easy to see that math scores are on the verge of an educational explosion. As we learn more about the brain and its capabilities, we are beginning to see just how impressively it can adapt. There is a link to the research done with taxi drivers in London showing how portions of their brains grow when studying for a test and shrink after they retire.
Then there are...
So a small adjustment to the attitudes we have toward math can result in big improvements achievement. And all teachers know that small successes build confidence. (It's one of the choices for electronic report card comments.)
AlgebraCARDS works to build confidence by helping learners to see and hear the concepts of algebra with clarity and in full color. Because we have made a podcast for every card, it just so happens that your brain will grow when you study with AlgebraCARDS. Designed to make math learning fun and engaging, most cards have a "Let's Play" review to show you how to win at the game of math.

Students whose parents reported high math anxiety made significantly less progress in math over the course of a year, and they were more likely to become anxious themselves—but only if their anxious parents sweated through helping them with homework."
