The author reports on data taken from a single case study of a mathsphobic student teacher engaging with a Mathematics content and method course as part of her preservice course in primary teaching. Sample comments are given from the journals of both student and lecturer as the course progresses. The interpretation of this data is then explored from a variety of perspectives in order to begin to untangle the complex web of factors, which interact with each other in this topic.
