The United Kingdom has bought into Shanghai’s maths expertise.
International publisher Collins Learning signed an agreement with Shanghai Century Publishing Group on Tuesday at the London Book Fair to publish a translation of Shanghai’s primary mathematics teaching materials Tim Schaller Jersey , the Shanghai Education Commission said yesterday.
The project will translate maths education books used in Shanghai. The city boasts a consistently high performing jurisdiction in international assessments such as Program for International Student Assessment (PISA).
The aim will be to deliver a complete maths program for the primary phase as taught in English schools.
The textbooks have already been used as exemplar resources by the UK’s National Center for Excellence in mathematics teaching in teacher training programs.
Collins will launch the Real Shanghai Maths project in September and some primary schools in the UK will use 36 kinds of teachers’ books, students’ books and practice materials for first to sixth graders from that month.
Real Shanghai Maths is a rigorous primary mathematics program, with textbooks at its center Torey Krug Jersey , which emphasizes complete mastery of basic numeracy knowledge and skills to allow accelerated progression through to advanced numeracy.
“We are delighted to be working with the team at Shanghai Century Publishing Group to translate their world-leading program for UK students,” Colin Hughes, Managing Director of Collins Learning said.
“We believe this collaboration can make a significant contribution to raising young people’s mathematics performance.”
Lee Newman David Krejci Jersey , primary publishing director at Collins Learning, said, “at the heart of Shanghai mastery teaching is a belief that all children can excel at maths Danton Heinen Jersey , which resonates with our values and ambition at Collins.
Shanghai and the UK launched an exchange program of maths teachers in 2014.
In September that year, 73 teachers and leaders — together with educational administrators from 45 English primary schools and relevant departments — visited Shanghai schools.
Between November 2014 and March 2015, 61 mathematics teachers and researchers from Shanghai visited 48 English primary schools and demonstrated to their British counterparts mastery teaching with British students.
Britain’s Department for Education commissioned Sheffield Hallam University to conduct an evaluation of this exchange and found that Zdeno Chara Jersey , across all 48 schools, most teachers reported that the changes implemented since the Shanghai teachers’ visit had led to positive outcomes for pupils, and indications are that this program will have a significant effect on mathematics attainment in the UK.
Since 2014 Brandon Carlo Jersey , more than 400 British and Shanghai teachers, school administrators and experts have participated in the mutual visit program.
The exchanges also opened a window for Shanghai teachers to learn from western teaching methods, said Zhang Minxuan Riley Nash Jersey , director of the PISA program in Shanghai and professor at the Shanghai Normal University.
