Hi to all,

I could do with the help from the group with an 8 year old lad I am working with who is obssessed with Math, tested 98 percentile in math and is getting very frustrated at the adults for not letting him learn stuff above his year group as this would conflict with the school, they just can't keep up with him. I had the idea of diverting him with maths for computing as they will not be covering this anytime soon.

I have to say he is a natural at this and has a natural ability for pattern recognition, also plays the violin and Piano post Xmas; I think one of the top 1% of kid who will be an engineer not because of what we do but dispite it, that said I would rather he did not feel adults did not get him or held him back because they cant cope with him just wanting to learn stuff he likes and it just happens to be Maths with this lad.

I was wondering if anyone might have any thoughts on this and if you know of any books I could get for him that will introduce in a simple way undergrade year 1 or foundation maths for computing in plain english.

Thanks
@dorineFlies
