Speaking of the MathForum at Drexel, the MathEdCC (Math Education Community College) forum has had quite a discussion lately about math anxiety, what it is and isn't and what, if anything, we can do to ameliorate it.
There have also been a few posts so far about Wolfram Alpha (http://www.wolframalpha.com) and how to incorporate it into our teaching ("if" to incorporate is not an option since students will use it whether we want them to or not). If you have not seen what Wolfram Alpha can do, just check out some of the math examples at http://www.wolframalpha.com/examples/Math.html.
