GoSlash27: Math... "anxiety"??People actually get anxious over math??
FizixJunkee: GoSlash27: Math... "anxiety"??People actually get anxious over math??Yes. I've met sooo many women who absolutely freak out at the sight of even the simplest algebraic expression. I don't get it at all. As far as I can tell, at some point in their childhood they had a female teacher who didn't teach math well---perhaps because the teachers themselves didn't really understand it?---and these young girls got "stuck" on something and never advanced beyond it. From there, it just got harder and harder as they got further and further behind. These girls then hear "math is hard" or "girls can't do math" and they just give up and accept it. Rarely are they embarrassed by it, probably because society tells them it's okay to not be good at math.It's sad really.\never had trouble with math\\ it was just obvious to me
