We are all born mathematicians, according to a couple of University of Canterbury psychology professors. They've received a 700,000 dollar grant to look at how much algebra ability humans are born with. Turns out it's more than you think. If we can work out how much we know before school starts trying to teach us, we may be able to find new ways of working with kids who get left behind. Professor Randolph Grace is one of the researchers.
