WATCH: 12-Year-Old Challenges Einstein's Theory Of Relativity+++++

First Posted: 03/28/11 03:38 PM ET Updated: 03/28/11 06:05 PM ET

Is calculus not your thing?

Not to worry. A 12-year-old is here to help you out (scroll down for the mind-boggling video).

The Indianapolis Star reports that Jacob Barnett, who is mildly autistic, grasps some of the most complex concepts in math. He's attending Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, where there is a movement to get him on board as a paid research assistant.

"We have told him that after this semester . . . enough of the book work. You are here to do some science," said IUPUI physics Professor John Ross.

Not only does he love working equations, Barnett believes he can prove Albert Einstein's Theory of Relativity wrong, TIME reports. Astrophysics professor Scott Tremaine of the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton confirms he's onto something. Another project in the works: disproving the Big Bang Theory.

Time to learn from him firsthand. See this fascinating footage of the boy with a higher IQ than Einstein teach the techniques of integration for Calculus 2:

"A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experience­s himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousn­ess. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restrictin­g us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."

-Albert Einstein
