Math anxiety is a well-documented phenomenon. This lack of confidence in math can have far-reaching consequences, following people throughout their lives. This project examines how feelings towards math change throughout one’s math career, specifically how teachers’ and students’ attitudes morph over time. People will share their experiences through a focus group to identify themes and address them accordingly. The information gained from the focus group will inform communities about the implications of different math classes on teachers’ and students’ math anxiety. This research will also inform teachers on how to support their students better.
