Abstract

Stress is one major issue associated with daily living, and its proper management is an indispensable key to proper and comfortable living. Mathematics just like stress is an integral part of daily living, with its knowledge dictating to a certain extent the flow of activities in all areas. Considering the applicability of mathematics in every aspect of living, it isn’t too far-fetched to assume it also influences stress and its management process. Thus, this review was designed to look into the concept of stress, its management technique, and the role and presence of mathematics knowledge in its management. This review explored the various categories of stress management techniques, including flexibility, awareness, time management and organization, exercise, relaxation, etc. Taking account of the various techniques, the applicability of mathematics knowledge and skills in the process of stress management is then shown with its influence felt through everyday numeracy, the cognitive development and organization skills associated with the knowledge of mathematics, etc. Thus, it is shown that knowledge of mathematics is not only present but necessary in managing stress.

Key words: Mathematics, management, stress, knowledge, skills.
