33 p. 

Research among college students has shown that the study of mathematics generates anxiety reactions among students who are not necessarily highly anxious in other situations. Because high levels of anxiety can devastate a student's ability to perform, a math anxiety workshop was field tested in 1993 at the Mohave Valley Campus of the Mohave Community College (MCC) in Arizona. The workshop was offered in 2 sections and was attended by 30 students. The program, based on the findings of a study about the needs of students with math anxiety, concentrated on preparing students for math tests and the study of mathematics through reducing time pressures, reducing the amount of material to be memorized, increasing homework load to increase proficiency, and utilizing relaxation techniques. Instructors were encouraged to participate in assessment and placement of students, address different learning styles, and reduce anxiety levels in classrooms. Exam anxiety was to be reduced through open note or open book exams, group or team exams, take home exams, providing students with study sheets, and replacing long, periodic exams with short, daily quizzes. (Extensive appendixes include the following materials from the workshop: descriptions of audio-visual materials used for motivation, instruction, and relaxation, Math Test Anxiety Scale assessment tool, and positive statements for academic success.)
