Paul Rosu is a 11-year-old sixth-grader at Smith Middle School in Chapel Hill who earned the highest score possible on the Advanced Placement Calculus AB exam last year.  He is auditing a Differential Equation Lab math course at UNC-Chapel Hill.  And, yet, he’s apparently still required to take Math I (formerly Algebra I).   According to the WRAL article,

By day, Paul walks the halls of Smith Middle School like any other 11-year-old. A self-described video-gamer, he smiles and talks with friends in his Math 1 class, where they work on Algebra problems as a picture of Einstein gazes on from the front of the classroom.

Math I is a waste of this child’s time.  He should have a customized mathematics curriculum that meets his unique needs.
