(South China Morning Post) Some 70 British maths teachers have arrived in Shanghai to study the teaching techniques used in the city’s classrooms.

Their visit is part of an ongoing initiative by the British government to improve standards in schools in England by studying successful techniques used around the world.

The visiting teachers are going to spend the next two weeks visiting local primary schools in Shanghai, where students stunned educators around the world in 2010 after they outscored their counterparts in dozens of other countries – including the US, UK and Singapore – in maths as well as in reading and science in an international student assessment exams.

The teachers were set to begin “immersion-style teaching exchanges” in 43 primary schools in Shanghai on Tuesday, news portal Thepaper.cn reported on Monday.

These teachers are visiting under a new round of a teacher exchange programmes agreed between the Shanghai Education Commission and the British Department for Education late last year.

In exchange, Shanghai will send 34 maths teachers to visit schools in England in November and another 36 in January next year, the commission said.

England is the first country to launch an official programme to learn teaching skills from Shanghai.

A total of 50 maths and science teachers visited Shanghai in 2013 and 2014 to take part in a training programme at Shanghai Normal University, the city’s top teacher training facility.

In September 2014, 71 maths teachers from across England travelled to Shanghai, where they spent time with their peers in high-performing schools and colleges, observing teaching and discussing learning methods.

The teacher-led exchanges are expected to promote excellence in the teaching of maths, the Department of Education in London said.

Yes. It means guys and gals have no time off to date each other, no time to watch late night TV and no time to make a good night call to Dad and Mum before hitting the sack. Every minute must be sacrificed to the God of the numbers.

Maths teaching should go with shapes and enough experiments, the internal logical link of the theory is more important than the countless sums!
The most useful knowledge and skill that we are lack of is that of about human!
