Scott has stated that he was nine years old when he first discovered his mental calculator abilities, after he was able to solve his teacher’s math question without needing to write down the calculations.
The Human Calculator® has been teaching math and entertaining people with his astonishing math skills for more than 20 years. People challenge him almost every day to calculate large math problems in his head-and he loves each challenge!
Zero-to-Nine Numeric System – The Downtown Project
“Flansburg’s zero-to-nine numeric system, which he conceived 14 years ago on the 18th hole of a golf round with rock star Alice Cooper, will become part of 9th Bridge School’s early education curriculum.”
9th Bridge is a private school slated to open downtown this fall. It is being funded by the Downtown Project, whose investors include Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh, the driving force behind much of downtown’s ongoing redevelopment.
Scott Flansburg, internationally known as the Human Calculator, was recently featured in a FOX 5 News Station in Las Vegas, NV. “Author and mathematician Scott Flansburg is slated to teach people at the Downtown Speaking Series his techniques that helped him earn the title of Fastest Human Calculator.”
Human Calculator Speaking Series “Making Math Fun”
Date – 7/9/2013
Location – Learning Village at 715 Fremont St. in Las Vegas.
Time – 5:30 p.m. before the speaking event at 6 p.m.
“Scott will be in Downtown Las Vegas the week of July 8th, during which he’ll leave his stamp on the community, just as he did on “Stan Lee’s Superheroes”. Throughout the week, he will be appearing at events ranging from lightning rounds of speed math for Tech Cocktail Week, a family event during Family Game Night, and the Downtown Speaker Series, where he may or may not require a pen and piece of paper from attendees. Not to worry though, he is a genuine team player rather than a dreaded teacher from your past. “
