The Shanghai Maths Method

Ruth Tarrant

30th November 2015

The Department for Education has been carrying out an experiment in 25 schools in deploying Shanghai-style maths teaching methods in UK classrooms, in an attempt to raise the UK's PISA standing from 26. In technical terms, the “Shanghai mastery approach” uses a highly methodical curriculum, aimed at developing and embedding a fluency, deep knowledge and understanding of underlying mathematical concepts.
