Learning math concepts and skills can be challenging depending on how you're being taught, how ready you are developmentally to learn the concept or skill, and a whole host of other reasons. One thing is certain, however, and that is the challenges you're facing in math are never because you don't have a "math brain."

Dr. Jo Boaler, a Professor of Mathematics Education at Stanford University, is at the forefront of advocating the idea that all children can learn math, and she uses the latest in brain science to back that up. Her website, youcubed, contains a wealth of resources for students, parents and teachers. For a quick look at the the heart of her incredibly important message, watch the video below.
