Shanghai’s latest export: math

The English version of a popular set of Shanghai math books which debuted at the recent Shanghai Book Fair attracted a great number of interested Chinese readers. Chinese publishers and scholars have been inspired by the introduction of Shanghai math books to the United Kingdom and are bringing the fruit of such exchanges back to the city. In Britain, pupils may need to sharpen their pencils in preparation to do math “the Shanghai way.” According to PISA website statistics, students from Shanghai came first in 2012 in PISA, which has been held every three years since 2000. British youngsters were 25 places behind. In 2015, Chinese students also performed significantly better than their British counterparts.

In 2016, the UK Department for Education announced that it would spend 41 million British pounds (US$53 million) on a four-year program to spread the Shanghai Teaching for Mastery Program in the country.
