Jake teaches us Calculus 2. Techniques of Integration

This is Jake Barnett. He's a 12 year old boy who was diagnosed with Autism, but who now communicates effectively, attends University, and is being considered for a research position. Amazing. Full kudos to his Mum who really stuck by him. When everyone told her what he couldn't do, she focused on what he COULD do. Lovely story - I look forward to hearing more about Jake in the years to come.


Oh yes.. and he is working on a new theory of relativity.
