My sister-in-law always debates me, she has a master's degree in actuarial science that she learned calculus in grade four or five back in Vietnam and that this is common same with a workmate who got educated in south America. My argument all they are learning is basic rules of calculus. chain rule quotient by memorizing them not actually applying it to real problems. Sure, an average 10-year-old can understand complex math concepts just by

applying a few simple rules. Einstein was no mathematician, but he was not a slouch at math knew enough to shock his fellows' physicists who were also no better at it then him. the need for heavy duty math did not happen until latter. Heisenbug did not know about linear algebra, which he used to develop quantum mechanics I learned it in grade thirteen, how times have changed.
