I am this professor. And I *hate* the fact that I have to be this professor for so many students. Math is wonderful and fun and very few people are actually bad at it, especially once they let the fear go. (And even the few students I’ve had with dyscalculia and the one with a more rare related form of dyslexia, have managed to still pass my math classes with extra time on tests and lots of training in their particular disability from experts. Folks who fail my class are the ones who don’t do any of the work.)
