I'm fascinated by math (uni. freshmen), but really haven't taken any hard math courses and feel kind of slow at it (highest class was high school calculus). Can someone get "good" at math? Many people say that it's more of an innate talent like sports or music. You can only improve so much and that to be really good you have to have that talent. What do people think about this argument? And what are some ways or tips to improve - even if perhaps I might not be able to be great at math (e.g. getting a master's or Ph.D. in it). How does one even go about thinking about math? I feel often slow at it and not sure where to start. In fact, my brain hurts sometimes thinking about math (whereas I don't experience that with studying something like English or biology), but I actually like the results if that makes sense. It's like solving a puzzle. It can be arduous, but the end result is very enjoyable if you get the right answer. I just wish I were better at it and don't know how to improve (if that's possible). Appreciate everyone's thoughts!
