Math geeks have higher academic achievements

Berlin : Children who enjoy studying mathematics and take pride in good scores are more likely to have higher academic achievements, say scientists who found that positive emotions and success at learning in math mutually reinforce each other.

Scientists found that students’ learning and cognitive performance can be influenced by emotional reactions to learning, like enjoyment, anxiety and boredom. Researchers Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitat (LMU) in Munich in Germany studied how students’ emotions in a school context relate to their achievement.

The study focused on achievement in math, which is not only important for education and economic productivity but is also known to prompt strong emotional reactions in students. “We found that emotions influenced students’ math achievement over the years,” said Reinhard Pekrun,              –PTI
