I recently read the following interesting articles on math anxiety from the perspective of cognitive scientist: http://www.danielwillingham.com/daniel-willingham-science-and-education-blog/math-anxiety-what-it-does-and-what-can-be-done and http://www.aft.org/pdfs/americaneducator/summer2014/Beilock.pdf. I don’t have a particular opinion on this, as my own expertise is on post-secondary students, but this definitely gave me some food for thought.
