Abstract: We examine math anxiety in a sample of 33 middle school mathematics teachers in a large socioeconomically disadvantaged urban district. Most reported some math anxiety. Furthermore, findings suggest that math anxiety may adversely affect teachers' practices: the intensity negatively correlated with the emphasis they placed on instructional practices critical to students' development of both mathematical understanding and productive dispositions. We discuss the necessity to address math anxiety in research and practice in teacher professional development.
