Go Figure (No math until age 10)!

Download or podcast our Math Mentor show with homeschooling father Martin Demaine (MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory) who mentored his son Erik.

Now Erik went to university at age 12, and became a professor by age 17. So he's a math genius, no doubt. Curriculum pushers take note that he was first exposed to multiplication when he was 10 years old.

If he had been in school he might have been flunking math.
