Not true. At least to the reference to Taiwan's curriculum. I have a set
of the standard math text from there. They track students into
and humanity-social science. The advanced math are taught to
students, and finish with the informal introduction to derivatives. It
would be more like
exception than norm for students taking AP calculus in high school level.
