Math Olympiad is harmful

王文湛 教授 (80) is a Math Prof in 清华,yet he can’t solve his 10-year-old grandson (Primary 4) Math Olympiad questions in Combinatorics.
The harms to kids math education:
1. Teach too early the higher math, only “acrobatic technique” , not genuine math education.
2. Waste parents’ money in unnecessary tuition for Olympiad math.
3. Pressure on kids.
