Who Is Jake Barnett?

So I was looking at some math videos and a video about a math prodigy popped up. The child’s name is Jake Barnett.

Jake has autism and this allows him to remember anything he reads, watches or hears concerning mathematics. He has distinguished himself and took college courses at the ripe old age of eight.



He will be graduating soon and then studying to get his doctorate’s degree.

So you see, it’s not all that hard to learn math! (Especially if your a prodigy!)

Hope you enjoyed the video and have a great day!

Is Math Really Hard?

Many people feel that math is really hard to learn. Both children and adults seem to have this opinion.

So it was with amusement that I read or rather looked at this article called:

10 Photos That Definitively Prove Math Is Really, Really Hard

Now I have a disclaimer of sorts …. the third picture in the article deals with the quadratic formula. As such, you may agree with the article’s title!

But it’s not really that hard to understand the quadratic formula – they even give you a link to another article that explains what the quadratic formula is!

But the rest of the pictures are pretty self explanatory and I find them humorous.

What about you? Do you think these photos prove that math is really really hard?

Have a great day!

Six Fundamentals For Learning Math

In this day and age, most people go online and do a a search for something they want to know. So I thought I’d give it a try.

I went to the big Google and did a search for how to learn math. The results lead me to a wiki site and an article titles: “How To Learn Math – 34 Steps With Pictures”.

Wow! Just 34 steps to learn math! How cool is that?

I would normally include the article on my post here, but this one is way too long!

So if you’re ready to see how easy it is to learn math, check out this article:

If you’re a wiki kind of person, you’ll appreciate this. If you’re not, let me know what you think of the article?

Oh and keep in mind that if this doesn’t really help you or your child, Mathnasium is always here to help!  🙂

Have a great day!

Learning Math Can Be So Very Hard!

I’m sure that at times, your child or maybe even you have had this thought – learning math can be so very hard – right?

Well, some kids made a video about a math class that they imagined and I’ve attached it below.

This may give you an idea about just what children think about their math classes!  🙂

If your child attends our Mathnasium sessions, we can guarantee that they’ll have a different perception about math!

We teach math in a way that children understand.  🙂

Hope you enjoyed the video – have a great day!
