Teen Spots Error in a Golden Ratio Formula at a Science Exhibit

Hearing stories about obscure geniuses is always inspiring, especially when they are young kids. One such incident recently took place at the Boston’s Museum of Science. A 15 year-old boy named Joseph Rosenfeld had visited the museum and was examining the exhibit of the Golden Ratio Formula.

Usually, the tiniest and simple error can change the dynamics of the entire mathematical problem. Rosenfeld managed to notice just that, while he was curiously analysing the mathematical problem that was displayed.

The boy noticed that there was a subtraction sign in the problem where an addition sign should have been placed instead. Rosenfeld said, “It was cool. At first, I wasn’t sure, I thought maybe I had it wrong, but I was excited.”

The exhibit called ‘Mathematica: A World of Numbers…and Beyond’ has now been operational for 35 years. A few errors are quite expected in fact. However, such errors help find the brightest and most acute minds in the crowd. Perhaps Rosenfeld will be the next great mathematician of our time.
