Today it will be a pleasure sharing with you, the four (4) youngest mathematicians in the worlds’ history.
Since the beginning of time there have been a lot of notable youngest achievers in the world doing great things in different ways.
But the most lovable part about this “youngest archivers” is that, they do these great things with little effort and still tends to stand out amongst every other person that has been doing it before them.
Overtime these child prodigies has proved to the world timelessly that age can never be a barrier to any achievement in life. That’s why you need to follow your dream without paying attention to what people will say.
But can we just continue talking without getting to know about these four child prodigies who happens to be the youngest mathematician in the world’s history? No, we can’t
So, without going further below are the four (4) youngest mathematicians in the world’s history.
About the (4) youngest mathematicians
4) Srinivasa Ramanujan
Srinivasa Ramanujan was an Indian mathematician and autodidact who lived in the eighteen B.C, during the British Rule in India. he was born on 22 December 1887 and died in 26 April 1920.
Srinivasa Ramanujan was an Indian mathematician and autodidact who, with almost no formal training in pure mathematics, learned college-level mathematics by age 11, and generated his own theorems in number theory and Bernoulli numbers by age 13 which also include independently re-discovering Euler’s identity.
3) Esther Okade
Esther okade is a British based Nigerian child prodigy and one of the youngest mathematicians in the world history who lived in Walsall a market town and administrative center in the county of West Midlands, United Kingdom, England. She got her early education from her mother at the age of three.
Esther has always jumped ahead of her peers. She sat her first Math GSCE exam, a British high school qualification, at Ounsdale High School in Wolverhampton at just six, where she received a C-grade. A year later, she outdid herself and got the A-grade she wanted. Then last year she scored a B-grade when she sat the Math A-level exam
Esther, became one of the united kingdom’s youngest freshmen in the year 2015 after she was admitted as an undergraduate in an open university based in United Kingdom at the age of 10 years.
The 10 years old child prodigy is an author of series of workbooks in mathematics which is known as “Yummy Yummy Algebra”.
2) Blaise Pascal
Blaise Pascal was a French mathematician, physicist, and religious philosopher who wrote a treatise on vibrating bodies at the age of nine years; he wrote his first proof, on a wall with a piece of coal, at the age of 11 years, and a theorem by the age of 16 years. He is famous for Pascal’s theorem and many other contributions in mathematics, philosophy, and physics.
Raised solely by his father, Asley was gifted at maths from an early age. At first glance Yasha Asley seems like a normal 8-year-old boy just like every other child in his grade.
A fantastic mathematical mind.
When he started primary school at the age of four, he was described as having the mathematical ability of a typical twelve-year-old. While attending school Asley passed the A-level exams and became the youngest person to have achieved the ‘A’ grade in Mathematics at the age of 8 in 2011, surpassing a record previously held by March Tian Boedihardjo.
For three years prior starting his university education his full-time schooling was split, three days a week at primary school and two days a week he learned mathematics with Professor Alexander Gorban at the University of Leicester.
the number one in the list of two youngest mathematicians in the 21th century.
Although he had met UK university entrance requirements by scoring top grades and was in a position to apply to UK universities, he wanted to continue in the standard education system. In an ITV interview, 24 July 2018, Yasha said, “… It wasn’t our first choice [to go to university]. But then it seemed like the head teacher had told my teachers to slow me down… So, we decided that I really had no choice [other than to go to university].” He began his university course at the age of twelve.
According to the Daily Mail, Asley ran tutorials at the University of Leicester when he was 13 years old. In 2017, at the age of 15, he became the university’s youngest ever graduate receiving a first-class degree in mathematics.
