T&T Student Math Phenom

For a large number of us the subject of Mathematics, does not hold a favorite spot in our educational memories .
It often brings to mind, anxiety, stress and one would even say painful thoughts of not being at our best.
The mortal I am, knows the feeling all so well. It is a subject that those that love it, seem not to understand, how the rest of us can’t seem to get it.
Well we just can’t it seem.
So when I had the privilege of meeting young Math genius Adolphus Daniel Jr, it was like wow. And wow again.
At the tender age of 10-years-old Adolphus got a perfect 800 score at the U.S College Board SAT Math Level 2 Subject test last year. Now this is a selective math exam used to determine the best of the best math students in the world. And yes, he became the youngest to ace it. His father Adolphus Daniel Sr told me a week ago that he wanted him to write it at 9-years-old but the SAT administration would not allow him because of his age. And according to him, the SAT administration said the restriction was to protect children from overzealous parents like him. But the restriction was removed after the family launched a campaign called The Dolphy Project to gather support for him to write the exam.
Before the SAT, he also aced the Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) mathematics exam in 2015. And although he does not have his career path nail-down yet, he knows it with will be in the math and sciences. This eloquent and soft spoken Trinidad and Tobago student one can say is well on his way to making more history.
