Molli the Math Lady
Molli the Math Lady will sign copies of her book, Beyond Math Anxiety, 99 Insights (and a Calculation's Not One!)

Students of all ages can be impacted by math anxiety and math shame, with negative impacts reaching well into adulthood.

Molli Osburn, MA, has helped numerous students and their parents understand and overcome math anxiety, and in this book, she takes the reader through a holistic approach to explore and improve feelings of math anxiety and math shame.

She is especially dedicated to helping girls and women find and express their power, reversing the stereotype that girls are less capable or interested in math and STEM subjects.

“When the problem is poor grades and/or test scores in math, most parents and teachers (and even students) assume that the solution is to work more on studying the material. In other words, “buckle down” and “study harder.”

Phrases such as those are rarely effective because there’s a whole other layer that needs to be dealt with before we can most effectively work with the material,” says Osburn, explaining how underlying negative feelings about math can undermine attempts to improve.

Come visit The Polytech on October 30, 2018 between 10:00am and 12:00 noon to meet Molli and get your copy of Beyond Math Anxiety signed!
