The Leader in Rapid Math Learning Programs for Young Children
Dr. Miles Jones, Founder of The Institute for Accelerated Learning, created one of most effective rapid math curricula available. He has been developing and teaching accelerated learning techniques to young children for over 30 years.
Inner City First Graders Double Promoted
Dr. Jones began teaching these methods to 20 first grade Hispanic students in the Dallas inner-city public schools. The program was such dramatic success that by year's end, 12 out of the 20 students were double-promoted from the first to third grade. In a public demonstration the following year, the students went up against Mensa PhDs in a contest of speed and accuracy in calculating powers and roots. The PhDs used electronic calculators and the children did the math using only their minds. The students beat the PhDs with a score of 14 to 6. They were dubbed "Jones' Geniuses". Since then, the name and Jones Geniuses Accelerated Education has become the official name of Dr. Jones' rapid math programs.
I found a recorded news cast (watch the video here) of this math challenge.
“The problem was to find the fifth root of 714,924,299. In less than ten seconds, three [Jones Geniuses] students correctly answered 59. The adults, with calculators, took more than a minute. Some never finished.”

Jones Geniuses Accelerated Learning Math Kits
Dr. Jones' beginner's kit is Math One – Matrix Math. Matrix Math is an innovative method of training young children to instantly recognize numbers and their values, then rapidly be able to add and subtract them in their head. His kits go up to Math Eight, where children master complex math calculations instantly with their minds. Order Jones Geniuses math kits here!
