Transforming Math Anxiety to Math Agility


Dilip Datta, an emeritus professor of mathematics at the University of Rhode Island, has completed his new book “Transforming Math Anxiety to Math Agility”: an in-depth book that tackles specific points on how to achieve an understanding of math and prevent anxiety from taking over when exploring the topic.

Author Datta writes a systematic analysis of mathematics and its impact on students, paving the way for a better comprehension of the field: “Math anxiety is, nowadays, a well-known phenomenon. This book contains the observations, research, and experiments of a concerned math teacher who, for over three decades, worked with students experiencing math anxiety. The book contains discussions and views by experts about math anxiety, causes of math anxiety, types of math anxiety, and various teaching strategies. We have included a careful study of some rough spots of math and how to make them easy and understandable to students.

The book also contains selected examples of cases and how we tried to help the afflicted person. Through these examples, we have tried to reveal the nature of the problem and practical ways to solve them. To make the text lively and interesting, we have included opinion and reactions of the students, in their own words, to our approach.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Dilip Datta’s absorbing paperback also hopes to reinvigorate the aptitude for math by presenting candid sentiments from students who have met challenges in math.

Readers who wish to experience this work can purchase “Transforming Math Anxiety to Math Agility” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
