The Shanghai Maths Project in the UK
An agreement to publish English translations of texts used by Shanghai's primary school maths program was signed Tuesday (14Mar2017) at the London Book Fair between Collins Learning and Shanghai Century Publishing Group.
Collins plans to release Real Shanghai Mathematics, a series of 36 textbooks, starting in September.
Colin Hughes,Collins Learning's managing director, called the signing "a historic moment".
"This development arises from increasingly successful collaboration between Shanghai and the British government, aimed at raising standards of mathematics education in UK schools by adopting the excellent approach that places Shanghai as a world leader in mathematics teaching."
Since 2014, over 400 teachers, leaders and researchers from China and Britain have been on academic exchange visits.Educators in both countries said their schools benefitted from the exchange.
Students from Shanghai have consistently scored well in the Program for International Student Assessment, a triennial exam of 15-year-old students that helps evaluate education systems worldwide.
The textbooks already have been used by the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics to train British teachers.
The UK education department announced a four-year, 41 million pound ($50.3 million) Teaching for Mastery Program last year to develop techniques used in Shanghai, Singapore and Hong Kong for use in 8,000 UK primary schools. Collins hopes to gain the program's endorsement for its new textbook series…..
