Management of Mathematics Anxiety through Behaviour Technology, Super Brain Yoga and Varmalogy in Ninth Standard Students
This research is carried out on 35 students of IX standard, Kendriya Vidalaya. Students were selected for the therapy on the basis of their SUD score. After taking Math autobiography it was revealed that anxiety in Mathematics for the students was developed due to various causes and the students were not Dyslexic. Student’s average score in the recent Mathematics exam was noted. Mathematics Anxiety was assessed by using Suri, Monroe and Koc’s (2012) short Mathematics Anxiety Rating Scale and their hemispheric dominance of the brain was measured by using Taggart and Torrance’s Human Information Processing Survey (1984). Students were treated with Behaviour Modification techniques, Adappa Kalam and Super Brain Yoga for four weeks. For the study Interventions used are: (i) Reduction of Rate of Breathing (Ganesan, 2012). (ii) Laughter Technique (Ganesan, 2008). (iii) Develpoment of Alternate Emotional Responses to the Threatening Stimulus (Ganesan, 2008). (iv) Adappa Kalam (Shunmugom, 2014) (v) Super Brain Yoga (Sui, 2005). The Anxiety level and performance in Mathematics exam was reassessed after four weeks. Results showed that group’s Mathematics Anxiety and Mathematics SUDs were significantly reduced from 65.14 to 52.49 and 60.63 to 48.29 respectively. Eventually, it significantly improved the group’s average performance in Mathematics exam from 51.43 to 58.60. This shows that Behaviour Modification techniques, Adappa Kalam and Super Brain Yoga are efficient in treating Mathematics Anxiety.
