"When the youcubed team (a center at Stanford) created a free set of visual and open mathematics lessons ... 94 percent of students said they had learned to “keep going even when work is hard and I make mistakes.” Such activities not only offer deep engagement, new understandings, and visual-brain activity, but they show students that mathematics can be an open and beautiful subject, rather than a fixed, closed, and impenetrable subject."
"Other researchers have found that the better students’ knowledge of their fingers was in the first grade, the higher they scored on number comparison and estimation in the second grade. Even university students’ finger perception predicted their calculation scores. (Researchers assess whether children have a good awareness of their fingers by touching the finger of a student—without the student seeing which finger is touched—and asking them to identify which finger it is.)"
"Evidence from both behavioral and neuroscience studies shows that when people receive training on ways to perceive and represent their own fingers, they get better at doing so, which leads to higher mathematics achievement."
Unless you own the company or have some massive amount of options or stock, do not be afraid to leave. You only owe the employer the best work you can do for what they pay (for 40 hours a week!); you are not a slave and you owe nothing in loyalty outside of that commitment to do good work. Find a good place and stay a while but if it's not good or no challenge or boring or the people are irritating or management is dumb or whatever don't be afraid to find something else. I know it isn't always easy (there were lean times in the 00’s) but keep your eyes open and never be afraid to talk with recruiters or buddies or network even if you are currently happy. You never know what cool thing might come along.
