Why have so many people had such a traumatic, anxiety-inducing experience when it comes to maths? In this video, Dan Finkel explains the ways we can fix this moving forward. So when students come to maths class, they thrive.

As maths teachers, we know that most people either love maths, or hate it. Some proudly proclaim to be a ‘maths person’. Others experience anxiety at the thought of numbers or equations. And this is exactly what Dan wants to change. He wants every person to see the beauty of mathematics and experience the joyful journeys of discovery that it can take you on.
