Toddler crying to do something

My toddler is 22 months old and will experiment a lot of tasks, for instense the other day she was opening the lid of a coca cola bottle, she managed to unscrew it, but was struggling to screw it back and she cried and faught until she got it right, now everything she is trying something out and cannot get right will make her angry and she will cry cry.
My question is will this be problem when she is growing older when she is at school and cannot get a maths sum right will it also frustrate her like this, can it have a negative effect on her in future?

This is normal behaviour at this age and you are experiencing some of the early signs of the Terible Two's which are coming up soon. Just be patient with your little girl and try to assist her where you can. she will grow out of this stage.
