What's 9 + 10?

Hopefully, 21 wasn't your answer *wink*. We always say here at the company that we take a systems approach to the human platform, and mental math achieves exactly that: A systems approach within the brain.

Yusnier Viera is a real-life math wizard, known around the world as the “The Human Calendar”. Born and raised in Cuba, Yusnier holds the world record calculating calendar dates, using a mixture of flash math & trained memorization. Along with demonstrating this unique skill within the episode, Yusnier and Geoff discuss the following:

  • The importance of math for daily life and how Yusnier trains his brain
  • The future of education & what the best approach to learning is
  • What it was like growing up under the Cuban government and how his upbringing pushed him to become one of the best mental sports athletes today
