Little print-edition of Math Classics: Euclidean 《The Elements》(几何原理) – the second printing by volume after 《The Bible》.

The Euclidean Geometry was less emphasised in Secondary school from 1970s in the world (80s in Singapore) to be replaced by Vector Geometry (UK/USA) and Abstract Linear Algebra aka Vector Space / Affine Geometry (in France). It was a pedagogical mistake now these countries recognise – never “Throw the baby (Euclidean Geometry) together with the bath water (Old Maths )”.

IMO Competition usually has 2 out of 6 problems in Euclidean Geometry but no modern math or Calculus, reason being to cater for 100+ countries still with Classical Math. That’s why the Asian countries – South Korea (2017 IMO Champion), China (2nd IMO 2017), Vietnam (3rd IMO 2017) , HK, Taiwan, Thailand, – with old syllabus are top IMO but not the Advanced countries (France, UK, other European, Japan, USA, Singapore…).
