Jihye questions the `Asians are good at math` stereotype by exploring the differences between concept-based learning and more rote-based approaches that can be found in Western and Eastern education. She explains that the reason why any student demonstrates superior math ability may be down to factors of motivation, environment and the objectives of education systems, while reminding us that the potential to achieve lies within the individual. Jihye Song is currently a Grade 11 student, studying IB Diploma at K. International School, Tokyo. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
