umm... what the drat? I looked at the picture and thought it was amusing how he wrote p-nus, and looked down and people were having a one-up contest. How the... what? If cats lived on a planet filled with laser pointers and string, they'd be more focused than this.

Oh YEAH?!? Well I was performing Taylor series expansions for variational calculus at THREE while flying a helicopter and playing Bach's "Chaconne" on the violin!

"Did your parents teach you how to do them, or were you just naturally gifted? Learning to read age 2, fair enough I did also as did many people, but QUADRATIC EQUATIONS AT FIVE YEARS OLD?!"

Sorry a little clarification. My sis was 5 when I taught her. That would make me... 15-16 ish.

She was smart, and I noticed this, so I was explaining some stuff to her to see how much she understood.

I'm a pretty good teacher though too.

In my class in elementary school the teacher thought a group of us were too advanced for the usual stuff, so she put us in a small room with higher-level math homework. We finished it in five minutes and spent the rest of the time making faces into what we thought was the two-way mirror. It was a window into the classroom. Fail XD.

You know how I learned the quadratic equation??? To the tune of the Michigan Fight Song...

x equals negative b plus or minus root quantity b squared minus four a c divide that all by two a

OOOOHHHH YEEAA!

...god, I'm a nerd...

And I learned to read by the age of 2 as well. Education was very important in my household. We didn't have any video games and we weren't allowed to watch TV during the week!

When I first went to primary school (probably 4 so no biggy) my first teacher was surprised and impressed when I read to her a book without any of the usual hesitation most of my compadres displayed.

The fact I'd been read to every night and knew that particular book off by heart didn't occur to her.

It was chicken licken - so it wasn't exactly a stretch to memorise :)

My school doesn't teach me at a high enough level. :| In maths I need to be doing at least Upper Sixth work really but I'm doing Year 10 stuff.

In primary school I had an awesome teacher in Years 2, 5 & 6 strangely who had me doing Year 6 work in Year 2. :) That was good.

Geogyspsy: How are we to come to terms with who someone "really is" if not through what they do, which is, in large part, just the effects of their abilities. There is no "real person" underneath. A person is the summation of their abilities, their actions, and even their looks, and to discount any of those elements as not being the "real person" denies part of who they are. Sure, you shouldn't judge anyone based only on any one element of their persona, but denying integral parts of their being to find their "true self" seems like the silly side of psychobabble.

I love the fact that the parents thought it was funny enough to post it on the internet!

"The prodigies often develop severe mental problems and end up killing themselves in despair." -gorgack

'where'd you think up that little gem of a thought? I seriously, SERIOUSLY doubt this is true.'- psychgeek

I can see how life would be depressing as an advanced child. The simple act of bonding with children one's own age would be understimulating which may create some obstacles in having a regular social life.
I'm sure that you know how important meaningful interaction is to our mental state.

Gorgack has already pointed out that it can also lead people to have unreasonable expectations or idolize the child. No one wants to be on a pedestal.

Imagine what it would be like to feel as if people appreciate you only because of your abilities and not because of the person you are.
(Especially as a child who is intellectually stellar but emotionally normal for their age)

I'm not saying that it's like this for all of them but it can and has happened. I also don't know if suicide rates are higher in child prodiges but one needn't read a study to determine that some of the pressures a young genius can confront are downright traumatic.

"And also even if parents do teach there children it doesn't mean they will pik it up me and my sister had the same way of being taught to read, but aged 8 my sister still struggles so you can't blame it all on the parents."

Obviously their is the odd one out sometimes, but most kids can be taught to read early.

"but QUADRATIC EQUATIONS AT FIVE YEARS OLD?! "

Why not? The way I was taught was "If i have one apple, then another apple, how many apples do I have?

Apple + Apple = 2 Apple

Or if we want to get into algebra...

A + A = 2A

I actually used to do that as a kid all the time with those questions.

One apple times 5 = Y amount of apples?

1a x 5 = Y
5a = Y

I would have 5 apples.

If you can grasp the basics like the above, it's not that hard to take the next step and put it into a quadratic form, even at a young age. :|

I imagine a kid with a British accent saying this with a piano playing softly in the back-ground.

where'd you think up that little gem of a thought? I seriously, SERIOUSLY doubt this is true.

"I taught my sis how to solve quadratic equations at 5."
...

Did your parents teach you how to do them, or were you just naturally gifted? Learning to read age 2, fair enough I did also as did many people, but QUADRATIC EQUATIONS AT FIVE YEARS OLD?!

That said there was that kid that was a surgeon at 11 years old. Extreme child prodigies like that are usually very sad; there was this one girl who was playing all sorts of songs on the violin when she was around 4. In a later interview she mentioned how her mum said "If you don't learn these songs on the violin, I won't love you anymore" which is just despicable. The prodigies often develop severe mental problems and end up killing themselves in despair.
