Mill Lane Lecture Rooms , 8 Mill Lane, CB2 1RX

Of all school subjects, mathematics is perhaps the one that is most likely to provoke fear and anxiety. In this talk, Charlie Gilderdale and Alison Kiddle from the NRICH Mathematics Project will look at some of the causes and effects of mathematics anxiety, and invite the audience to challenge the accepted narrative about what it means to be good at mathematics.

Many people have bad memories of maths lessons at school, and feelings of mathematical inadequacy have lingered into adulthood. Recent research on mindsets makes it clear that most people have the capacity to be much more mathematically successful than they might imagine. Whether you are anxious about maths and want to better understand what’s holding you back, or you’re mathematically comfortable and want to support others who don’t feel the same way as you, this talk is for you!
