I am in class now, got to make it short and sweet.
Tonight I am in my Rti - Brain based teaching and learning with Math disorders, this is the class about me. I am a walking math disorder, not my strong suit nor do I have any interest. Funny, I work with numbers all day long or rather ALL DAY LONG and yet I enjoy my work because I can do equal parts of communicating which is a nice break from the calculating.
Our professor shared this video on Daniel Tammet, ever heard of him? A few years back, in 2002, he recited pi to 22, 514 digits within five hours and nine minutes. Scientists say his success is in part to his complex imaging.
In 2006, while he was in America on a book tour for his memoir Born on a blue day he met the real Rain man, Ken Peek who is equally amazing and brilliant in a different way. Their meeting is available on Youtube as well.
The brain is amazing, truly amazing.
