My question concerns the ability to learn some math "secrets" that will allow you to do mathmatical calculations of all types in your head.
I have seen and heard about "human calculators" and am very interested in finding out if this stuff is true.
I am very weak in basic math and would love something like this that would allow me to break my dependance of a calculator.
My question: Is this stuff a scam?
If it isn't why don't all mathmaticians do it? Also, why hasn't somebody learned it, and then taught it without trying to become a millionare?
I would appreciate your response.
