I don't think that my ds 7 is gifted, but apparently he has an interested in speed math.

Meaning, that he likes to race me in math facts (it looks like he has my math processing speed, which is a plus; granted, he also has my speeling ability, which is a minus).

However, his interest seems to be in square roots.

So, we've really skipped subtraction, multiplication (of basic facts), and division and gone straight into square roots.

I lost the game last night since I was unable to calculate 16 x 16 in my head fast enough to satisfy him (naturally, being the square root of 256, he knew what it was).

Normal multiplication is apparently boring in comparison to square roots.

Unsurprisingly, he has been unable to educate his classmates on the wonder of square roots.
