While most children his age were still learning to count, Mikhail Ali, a young boy from Northern England, knew his multiplication tables and could easily add four-digit numbers.
In 2005, when Mikhail was only 3 years old, he became one of the youngest members of Mensa, an elite organization open to people with IQs in the top 2 percent of the population. Mikhail—referred to as the "human calculator"—scored 137 on his IQ test.
Mikhail plays with numbers the way most children play with toys. He counts anything and everything...including the number of people in the supermarket.
Now, at age 5, Mikhail is starting to learn square roots and fractions.
