This presentation can be used for an event or seminar in which students have no further exposure to BIOMAAP activities. If you plan on using BIOMAAP activities in your course, we recommend starting with the “Introduction to BIOMAAP” presentation instead. The presentation introduces the idea of math anxiety, and presents some of the research and strategies in BIOMAAP, with examples drawn from the “Introduction to Growth Mindset,” “Answer checking,” “Value of Mistakes,” and “Reflective writing” modules.
If you do end up sharing this presentation with your department or other colleagues, we would love to hear from you!
