Nature vs. Nurture? Let’s Do The Math

It’s so interesting (regarding enrollment in a distance learning college). It has the type of maths I love. It’s real maths — theories, complex numbers, all that type of stuff,” she giggles. “It was super easy. My mum taught me in a nice way. I want to (finish the course) in two years. Then I’m going to do my PhD in financial maths when I’m 13. I want to have my own bank by the time I’m 15 because I like numbers and I like people and banking is a great way to help people. ~Esther Okade,

For now we want her to enjoy her childhood as well as her maths. By the time she was four I had taught her the alphabet, her numbers, and how to add, subtract, multiply and division. ‘I saw that she loved patterns so developed a way of using that to teach her new things. I thought I would try her with algebra, and she loved it more than anything. She wants to be a millionaire. ~Mrs. Omonefe Okada (Esther’s mother)

You inspire us to work even more diligently on programs like Academic Resilience Training™.
