Is there anyone think that Asian students always good at mathematical problems. Seems like they always on top of all classes.

It's not just mathematics, it is all forms of learnig. It is a matter of culture and tradition. Asians are generally raised in a Confucian tradition that respects learning and hard work. Similarly, Jewish kids, who are raised in the Rabbinical tradition do well in scholarly subjects.

Asian language and culture are based on memorization.

Now is the median or mean (which do you have in mind?) higher than that of other races? How do you go about stating, let alone proving, that Asians are better at math than everyone else? Is it actually true? Can you point me to some links to support your thesis? Last edited by Maschke; May 15th, 2018 at 10:59 PM.
