Next Mathematics Faculty Seminar

The next meeting of the faculty seminar took place on Thursday, April 30, in YR 320, starting at 3:30 p.m. The speaker was Dr. Wei Sun, who presented a sabbatical lecture on What is happening in the middle school mathematics class in Shanghai?.

Abstract: PISA (an international study on students’ achievements) results have shown that the middle school students from Shanghai, China outperformed their counterparts in other countries in all three areas of mathematics, science, and reading. To find out what contributed to such success, I spent three months during sabbatical leave to visit some middle schools in Shanghai. I will share my observations and findings during my sabbatical talk.
