The project was about math anxiety in university students and how it affects non-STEM major students, in particular. Its purpose included creating a professional development workshop for STEM professors so that non-STEM major students can be supported in math courses. Non-STEM major students were identified to face the issue of math anxiety, which affects their academic careers significantly. Therefore, in terms of rationale, an attempt was made to design such a workshop for STEM professors so that they can support non-STEM major students to overcome the issue and thereby obtain better career prospects in the future. The application presented entailed a 4-week program with distinct sessions designed for STEM professors to provide active support to non-STEM major students who take math courses in their studies. Some counseling theories were also suggested in the workshop for the STEM professors for generating positive results on behalf of such students.
