Build a solid relationship with your teacher

A good relationship with a teacher would automatically mean a pleasant and fun classroom atmosphere for you.
Have fun practicing
Dedicate a fixed time every day for your math practice. You will only be able to understand the concept and their applications if you practice every day. Try to challenge yourself to do better to make the session fun and keep yourself motivated.
Remember that you have to face your fear of mathematics first and conquer it to start having fun with the subject.
