Hong Kong, China (AHN) - A nine-year-old Indonesian-Chinese math prodigy on Tuesday started his university studies in Hong Kong, the Chinese media reported.

And it looks like March Tian Boedihardjo is off to become the youngest holder of a master's degree by breezing through his first lessons at the Hong Kong Baptist University. The Hong Kong-born Boedihardjo described the mathematical analysis lecture on Tuesday as easy and said he learned it two years ago.

The boy also attended a Spanish class.

The university admitted the boy to a five-year bachelor's and master's degree program in August after he passed special math tests in the United Kingdom and taking up courses at the Oxford University.

Too bad the article is short. I would love to know about his life at home. Is there a tv in every room where he lives? Is he surrounded with Xbox and PS3? I don't think so, and if I am right, then kids should grow up in an environment conducive to learning to succeed academically. Then perhaps the people who always ask what district has the best schools for their children would do much better by making their homes a good learning environment first.

Default Wonderment

I think I can add to this thread. I would like to know what sports he is in> Hmmmm. Seems to me they talk only about classroom EDUCATION. Imagine that.... an EDUCATION without sports. So see it is possible and more timely. That is one amazing story though. I wonder how he got to that level so young? Did this same family have other children too? Just amazing!
