When I think of the topic of math fear encompasses me and negative thoughts enter my mind. I can remember all the way back to elementary school that math was a beast and that I was never good at it. Why was it hard? Was it an attitude that I had? Was it a bad experience that shaped my memory to where it is today? A answer that I have concluded with is that everyone is made with gifts, talents and strengths. Where I am strong another is weak and where I am weak another is strong. Granted this represents the extremes but it gives you the picture. I also beleive that learning styles play a role in math. These are just some thoughts and mostly opinions that I have experienced. What are your opinions?
