Subject: Re: Re: What causes mathematics Anxiety?
There is a learning disorder called dyscalculia. Unfortunately it is not well known so it is often overlooked. No one has "anxiety" about math without a reason for it. People who suffer from dyscalculia become anxious when expected to do math just as someone with dyslexia becomes anxious when they have to read.
