(WTNH) – The Human Calculator, Scott Flansburg, discovered his incredible gift in the third grade. He was able to calculate numbers and dates with calculator accuracy and calculator speed.
By the time he was in the fifth grade, Scott was teaching his teachers more effective ways of teaching math. He says the flashcards and memorization techniques don’t teach students logic.
