My strong belief is that everyone has a basic ability to learn mathematics. It's like learning a language.
On first hearing an unfamiliar language it can sound very difficult to master, but to those hearing, using and learning the language daily it soon becomes second nature.
The same principles apply with maths.
Begin by learning the basic vocabulary (addition bonds and times tables), then practise sentence construction (basic methods such as column addition and short multiplication) taking care to use correct punctuation (use of the equals sign) and grammar (correct working out) along the way.
Practice a little bit each day so that you grow in confidence and soon you will become fluent in the language of mathematics !
