As an educator, you know how much of your time and resources get dedicated to exploring the following question: How can we improve the student learning experience?
One way to tackle this issue — often overlooked — is to consider students’ attitudes towards math.
Whether positive or negative, attitude towards math often reflects a student’s value, self-confidence, enjoyment, motivation and anxiety levels when it comes to the subject.

As early as 1st grade, students can start displaying negative attitudes towards math.
