Few academic subjects carry as much baggage as math. Students and teachers alike may wonder if they have a math brain (short answer: yes), and what happens when we learn math or face anxiety about it. This workshop explores key neuroscience concepts including working memory, neuroplasticity, and metacognition. Teaching applications and practical first steps that adult education teachers can implement in their math classes are also shared.
