Theo's Formula

Teodosii Teodosiev is the most famous teacher in Bulgaria. His students regularly take part in the International Physics Olympics and win more medals than everyone else. He is considered “the physics teacher of the best physics teachers”. What is his secret? Being familiar with Hölderlin’s poems? Giving away the most expensive and valued product on the market today – education – as a gift? Or maybe that’s just Theo’s formula.
