Round Rock ISD student publishes calculus book to help fellow students

High school graduate Aditya Velamuri taught himself arithmetic while living in India. When he moved to Texas last year, he began teaching to fellow students.

ROUND ROCK, Texas — Round Rock High School Senior Aditya Velamuri teaches calculus to his fellow students. He knows how to teach others because he taught himself arithmetic while living in India.

“I think it’s a lot easier to help people when you’ve made that mistake yourself,” Velamuri said of the importance of students helping students.

When he came to Round Rock last year, he saw that students needed help with calculus, so he formed an calculus club and began tutoring.

“A lot of people were afraid of math and they didn’t like calculus because people thought it was something extraterrestrial,” Velamuri said. “So I thought, ‘Why can’t I do something to change that perspective and get one? Few people care?'”

Last spring, when more and more students came to Velamuri for help preparing for the AP exam in Calculus, he noticed that there weren’t great learning resources for them. He felt that there needed to be shorter and more concise books. So in March he started working on a project to change that and last week his project was completed.

Released Velamuri “The Seven Day Calculus Review”, which is now sold on Amazon. It is a step-by-step learning guide for AP and college calculus students.

“Publishing a book is really, I mean, a lot of people think it’s great, but I think it’s about giving students a tool,” Velamuri said.

I definitely haven’t met many kids like Aditya,” smiled Travis McKinney, a math teacher at Round Rock High School.

McKinney said he never had Aditya as a student as he taught himself before he came to Round Rock High.

“He’s the only student I know who taught himself arithmetic,” McKinney said. “It’s not an easy task.”

But McKinney sponsored the Calculus Club Velamuri, formed last year.

“He had dozens of people showing up,” McKinney said. “He taught first and second graders taking Geometry and Algebra II. He taught these kids calculus.”

While the kids at his school benefit from having him right on campus, more people can now get Velamuri’s guidance through his book.

“Once you know the uses, it will be really powerful and potentially world-changing,” Velamuri said.

Velamuri is currently applying to various universities and hopes to study computer science.
