'I'm Not A Math Person' Is No Longer A Valid Excuse


There's nothing surprising in this article: when people don't like something or feel they aren't destined to do it, they typically aren't very good at it or interested in learning it. Somehow this message resonates well in articles about learning math, but unfortunately such articles tend to focus on the problem instead of the solution. That's probably because the solution is rooted in a cultural shift in perceptions about mathematics, and cultural shifts of perception are not easy things to perform.
