Golden Boy



15-year-old Catches Math Error At The Museum Of Science In Boston

Way to go, Joseph Rosenfeld!

Two quantities a and b are said to be in the golden ratio φ if...



The calculation can be found HERE

Makes me wish I could take a look at the exhibit at the Museum of Science just to see the mistakes.

Make you wonder how many folks never even work the problem to see if it was right.

Way to go young man.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Absolutely. I wanted to see the exhibit just to see if I could've spotted it, but of
course, at my age it wouldn't have been an amazing feat. This boy is fifteen. This is one sharp kid.

Most impressive. Maybe it will inspire people to fact check the world around them more carefully.

cube said...

Jan: That is a great point. More people need to SEE and not just look. A cautionary tale for us all.

Kids like that have always amazed me.

sue hanes said...

Cube - Good for him. I certainly didn't catch the mistake. It all looks like a mistake to me!

Paul Pietrangelo said...

It's amazing that there are young people today using their brains for good. Well done young man. I hope that the museum gave him something for his help?

Have a wonderful Thursday Cube. See ya.

That's great for him indeed, good stuff.

cube said...

Messymimi: Me too. I was amazed when I got an A in my math class ;)

cube said...

Sue Hanes: The calculations that I linked to were correct. I'd love to see the museum exhibit so I could see where the mistakes were made.

cube said...

Paul Pietrangelo: This renews my faith in our youth. We should clone this kid. If I ran the museum, some would be fined and some would be rewarded.

cube said...

Blogoratti: It is good stuff. I wish the good stuff got more press.
