Quote of the Day: "New Year's Resolution: To tolerate fools more gladly, provided this does not encourage them to take up more of my time."  - James Agate

Agenda:
1. Do Now Question: Pick up questions in the front for the video
Questions for the video Beautiful Minds: The Einstein Effect
2. Video with Questions: Turn in after the video is over.
YouTube: Beautiful Minds - The Einstein Effect
A fascinating look at the relationship between genius and autism, with particular focus on the phenomenon of savants; a small group of enigmatic talents with extraordinary mental abilities.

Savants number less than 100 worldwide. Some can work out five-digit multiplication in their heads, or recite thousands of books by heart. Others can play a piano melody after hearing it only once. Over half of savants are autistic; others develop these super human talents only after brain injury.

With scientists now able to see billions of neurons at work in the brain, experts are now investigating whether it is in fact a defect that turns a person into a genius. Could the giant minds of the past – from Newton, to Mozart, to Albert Einstein have been autistic?
3. Learning Targets: After the video, students will complete the questions that correspond with the target sheets for Intelligence
Targets: Part I - Intelligence & Psych Testing - TARGETS
