A new mindset for maths

A new mindset for maths

  1. Posted on February 14, 2019

Tips for managing exam stress

It’s that time of year again…EXAM TIME! When I asked my son how he felt about it, he said breezily, “I don’t get exam stress.”“Then why do you get moody before tests?” I asked him.“I’m not stressed about my tests, I’m just annoyed with you guys” (his parents and siblings). A friend whose son attends a selective high school told me ...
