Welcome to the world of mathematics as taught by Susan Robinson.
Check out this radio interview with Dr Eugenia Cheng on BBC.
“Some people don’t like maths because they think, ‘Oh, my brain is getting all confused, it must be because I’m not very good at this.’ But actually, that’s what maths is about. You do have to feel like you are confused along the way, and that confusion is part of the path. If you never feel like you’ve pushed your brain to its limits, then your brain will never stretch. It will just keep doing all the things it could already do.”
