8-year-old PIO girl cracks Maths Hall of Fame in UK
London: An eight-year-old Indian-origin schoolgirl has entered the UK's Mathletics Hall of Fame, an online
mathematics-based competitive tool aimed at primary school pupils.
Sohini Roy Chowdhury competed with pupils from across Britain and other countries to also make it into the top 100 World Hall of Fame after solving mathematical puzzles with speed and accuracy.
"She feels really excited to solve maths in an online learning environment to earn a place on the live World Hall of Fame," said her father Mainak Roy Chowdhury, an accountant by profession with an MBA in finance.
"Sohini's great grandfather, D N Roy, was a qualified locomotive engineer from Scotland and worked for the Indian Railways. I would say Sohini has inherited her interest in maths genetically," he added.
Mathletics is described as an engaging, supportive online learning resource targeted at primary school level maths curriculum, allowing children to play live mental arithmetic games against other children from all over the world.
