Abstract

The article discusses the aspects of resilience in mathematics. It states that mathematical resilience is about understanding which involves confidence and ability to learn mathematics, wherein mathematically resilient students learn mathematics effectively. It also explores psychological resilience, defined as a dynamic process in which individuals show adaption of their behaviour on responding positively when encountering significant adversity, abuse, or trauma
