PINT-sized mathematician Adam D Ma has committed his passion for algebra into print in a bid to raise £104,000 for disadvantaged families.

The 10-year-old Devonshire Road Primary School youngster has penned poems about his favourite subject in a book titled "Cooking Algebra in a Pot".

Some 2,000 books have been printed and he's selling them at £6.99 with profits going to Urban Outreach.

Mum Thasleemah, 39, herself a maths tutor, says the aim of publishing the book was to make maths fun and enjoyable for other children and to raise cash to provide 52,000 lunches at 29 Urban Outreach hubs across Lancashire.

She said: "Adam wanted to share his passion for maths and starting writing poems about the subject.

"It was all about bringing out the fun aspect of maths and trying to help other children who may be less confident about maths.

"As a maths tutor myself, I know that overcoming maths phobia is a big thing.

"As Adam has grown up we have used maths everywhere so he understood from an early age how important it is in your life."

Two years ago, Adam launched his own YouTube channel called Adam Decodes Maths and he now has a global audience.

Encouraged by his mum he uses Japanese and Singapore maths techniques combined with Western theory to make the subject more understandable.

The youngster has also developed an extra-curricular interest in DJ-ing, and has adopted the name MC Squared as his persona.

Adam's book project has been supported with marketing and promotion by Pearson College in London and the Tutorfair Foundation.

The youngster told The Bolton News: "I am hoping one day to be an entrepreneur or a maths teacher.

"I love helping other children understand maths. It's a great feeling.

"It's so important not to be afraid of anxious about maths. My mum says it is such a vital thing that helps you throughout life, and I think she is right."
