Do you have students enter your classroom each year with math anxiety? I’m sure you do! Often, students become terrified of math from a young age. When this happens, they struggle to review previously learned concepts and be open to new material. Therefore, teachers work so hard to show students that math does not have to be scary. Yes, it may be complex and contain so much information to learn, but math is actually fun. For instance, the September Math Puzzles and the Math Puzzles Bundle contain so many ways to show students how exciting math is!
