Math reasoning does not mean having no difficulty in problems or understanding.  Resolving difficulty is very much part of mathematical thinking.   Mathematical thinking is spent a good deal of the time having difficulty understanding something.  This can stretch over years.  Poorly written or conceived materials, especially from the math establishment, may be part of that problem.
