12-year-old math prodigy Jacob Barnett teaches Calculus 2 (VIDEO)

(CBS) - I feel you're probably getting tired of my mentioning how much I love to put out videos that emphasize science or learning of any kind, but... I LOVE to put out videos that emphasize science and learning! Which is why I've been so impressed by the story of 12-year-old Jacob Barnett, who was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome and has accomplished so much at such a young age. In this video the child prodigy teaches the techniques of integration for Calculus 2.

Okay, so you likely won't be able to follow everything (possibly anything) that he's demonstrating, but you will be amazed at just how well he explains the processes and, well... that he is 12-years-old and understands all of this. The Force is strong in this one.
