A really interesting comment (https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=7347007
A lot of people have a smooth experience in math for years until they hit their first serious discontinuity. That could happen anywhere: times tables, fraction arithmetic, two-step equations, geometric proofs, radicals, limits, or maybe even college math. The reaction is nearly universal though. The person thinks, "holy crap, I guess I'm actually not good at math", anxiety strikes, and they freeze up.
Some people find eventually find their way around this first road block, and future discontinuities in understanding become less stressful, and eventually understood to be a completely normal part the process.
But the usual experience is that a person's math confidence is blown and as the math truck barrels on ahead, they never catch up. They understandably accept the identity of not being "good at math". #math
