Scott Flansburg is The Human Calculator®.
Bestselling author, Scott Flansburg, has been teaching math and entertaining people with his astonishing math skills for more than 20 years. Nicknamed, the Human Calculator®, he currently holds the Guinness World Record for adding the same number to itself more times in 15 seconds than a person can do using a calculator. This remarkable ability is what earned him the title of “Fastest Human Calculator®.”
Throughout Scott’s travels Scott proves his capacity to perform high-speed addition, subtraction, multiplication, square roots and even cube roots. More important than showing others the skills that he has acquired, he wants to show others that they already have the ability to perform seemingly difficult math problems without a calculator. Using Scott’s nontraditional tactics, he has learned that any student or professional who needs to use math in their daily life is only hindered by the calculator instead merely using their brain.
In Scott’s appearances, he is given a number and immediately begins adding the number to itself while saying each answer out loud. He does this while racing against an arsenal of professionals using calculators. As Scott stated, “the only thing that hinders me from adding the number faster is that I can’t speak as fast as I can think of the right answer.”
