The Development into the Mathematically Talented.
Usiskin, Zalman
Journal of Secondary Gifted Education, v11 n3 p152-62 Spr 2000
Discussion of the development of mathematical talent in students identifies seven distinct levels of talent and suggests that Srinivasa Ramanujan, the Indian mathematician considered to be self-taught, actually received good schooling and studied a comprehensive advanced mathematical text. This suggests that good instruction is as necessary for talent development as preexisting talent. (Contains references.) (DB)
