"Human Calendar" Yusnier Viera at the Mathematikum Museum in Giessen, Germany.

He's called the "Human Calendar," and he uses his math and memory skills to set world records in calendar calculations. Math whiz Yusnier Viera is coming to FGCU to share his passion for numbers and encourage a summer camp of Mathletes about the importance of using math to understand our world.

Prof. Viera joins Gulf Coast Live to share his story, how he discovered and developed his mind's unique computational abilities, and how those math skills led to record-breaking calendar calculations and a career as a mathematics professor.
