As of now he has mastered over algebra, trigonometry, geometry, and calculus.
Lately, Jacob Barnett has ventured into his most ambitious project his own ‘expanded version of Einstein’s theory of relativity’, which revolves around numerous toughest problems in astrophysics as well as theoretical physics. His research and its authenticity has been acknowledged by a world renowned expert and professor, Scott Tremaine. According to his parents, Jake has been spending several sleepless nights as he consistently sees numbers in his head and spends hours in debunking his big bang theory.
