why is math difficult

If you hear men talking about “bras” and “cats”, then they are physicists.

The other day I updated the Language section of my CV, stating that I have “working knowledge” in Mathematical Physics. Most people are afraid of Mathematics because it introduces a lot of new objects (or concepts) and different ways to use them. And that`s just like a language, with word and grammar. If you hear another language and you`re immediately asked to talk it, then it`s normal to be at least reluctant.
