I've decided to move ahead with some ideas I've been developing on teaching mathematics to individuals with mathematics anxiety. The object is to develop and sell a software-based product that can be used by adults in their own home. I believe that much mathematics anxiety in adults is a form of PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) and needs to be addressed before mathematics content can be mastered. My program would teach students relaxation techniques they need to use before attempting mathematics lessons. The lessons themselves would be tailored for adults likely to experience stress in learning mathematics.

I have placed an advertisement looking for help (no pay yet) with a start-up business to bring this all about. So far, this advertisement has been sent out to Acton Networkers, a local group of mostly technically savvy job seekers.
