The present experiment examined numerical processing in math anxious students. Participants performed an enumeration task. While math anxiety did not have an effect on subitizing (1-4 items) math anxious individuals performed worse in the counting range (5-9 items). The findings reveal deficient counting performance in individuals with mathematics anxiety.
