Sussex and Surrey Pupils to Learn Asian Style

Interesting local news in Heart Radio today:

(http://www.heart.co.uk/sussex/news/local/sussex-surrey-top-stories/)

“Pupils at schools in Sussex and Surrey are going to be taught maths – Eastern Asian style.

St Paul’s Catholic College in Burgess Hill and St. John the Baptist Catholic Comprehensive in Woking are two schools being set up by the government as so-called Maths Hubs.

It is part of an 11 million pound project to see whether daily maths lessons and more focus on times tables and long division, means our kids can compete with youngsters in places like Japan and China”
