    So many of my students have the same feeling as Steven, getting anxious in math and having that amplified with the competition in the classroom.

    I’m wondering then what kinds of competitive aspects can we bring into the classroom? I’ve found really solid engagement from many of my students with competition, but don’t want to be causing anxiety. Is there a place for competition in the math classroom without a timer?
