Fear of maths starts early on

Sir -- I was very taken by Andrew McKimm writing on maths (Sunday Independent, June 12, 2011). Could somebody make maths fun from an early age? Otherwise Ireland will not be the "smart economy" that it should be. Most of our children are afraid of maths, and that comes from a very early age.
