“A supplemental book” for courses in Study Skills.
This book incorporates user-friendly study skills practice, math practice, brain-based learning, and positive psychology so the reluctant and anxious student can overcome math anxiety. Students turn failure into success as they practice these new skills on basic math content. With clear psychological models for concentration and focus (called flow) into math, students learn how to match their skills with math challenges, set short-term goals and seek feedback in order to learn math successfully.
