Top definition
A situation whereby when faced with a fiendish math problem, one either takes up the challenge to solve it or runs away from it lest one fails to figure out the answer.
Adopting a fight-or-flight math approach in mathematical problem solving only benefits a few motivated or talented students, while alienating the majority of them, who may falsely believe that they're not born with the "mathematical gene."
