Learning new math is always scary. It may feel opaque, frustrating, contextless—the playing field is changing beneath your feet, and you’re not sure you know the rules anymore.
But you’ve been here before. Look back to something you can now do without thinking—chances are that at one point, you didn’t find it quite so easy.
Math can go from “impossible” to “obvious” much faster than you think. What now seems inscrutable will one day be quite scrutable indeed. Have faith, struggling students: It’ll All Make Sense Someday.
