Mathematics competition between youngsters of different ages.

Any ideas/explanation as to why in the 14-18 age group, the Turkish (20% of top 100) and Malasian's(30%) appear so good?

Serious though the Earths best mathematicians have nearly all come from the mid east to the Indian subcontinent, not sure if it is their teaching or just Genes

Quote from: zx81 My wife did a Maths degree

So did mine, and so did I (not at the same place or time).

If you want something difficult try Differential Geometry.

(especially the parts relating to General Relativity, space-time etc.)

*sin*of the times.

I was good at maths all the way through to A level, then went to study mechanical engineering and ended up with the world's worst maths lecturer. It all went downhill from there!
