"Math-anxiety" forms at an early age and often follows us into adulthood. Math isn't going anywhere. We use it to varied degrees throughout our lives. So how do we cope with the associated anxiety?

Solving a mathematical problem is a hurdle one encounters starting in elementary school. Attached to this is a unique educational issue known as “math-anxiety.” Resilience and persistence are essential skills in research, particularly in mathematics, where problems can remain open for generations: the Riemann Hypothesis is a star conjecture that has been fascinating and challenging mathematicians and amateurs for over 160 years. It is a life-long endeavour for a female professional mathematician such as Kadiri to tackle problems, both mathematical and societal, and find resources to overcome them.
