Handling your emotions
Studying mathematics as an adult can be a daunting (or even terrifying!) task. Not only do you need to make progress in your studies, you also may need to handle your negative emotions towards the subject as they can hinder you from achieving your full potential. The purpose of this leaflet is to give you some ideas and techniques that might help you to handle your emotions better when learning and doing mathematics.
