Ok lovely peeps I need your suggestions if possible.My next essay is due in the Monday I return to uni (3 wks time )
Its 2000 words
An essay analysing some aspects of the learning and teaching of mathematics in England and in another country.
I think it could be very interesting but am not sure what other country to go for,Im thinking it has to be somewhere i can get access to information,quite drawn to japan etc as their education is so much better than ours (i know its also very different)
Would appreciate any thoughts on the country to choose xxxxx

I agree, it does sound interesting. Sorry I can't help much as I know zero about maths curriculum in other countries - but we did have a new girl join our Year 6 from Australia a couple of months back. She is a whizz at maths (she's pretty good at everything). Just out of interest, I did look up some of their stuff and it was really easy to access their national curriculum - but it's not so different from ours, so it wouldn't give you much of a contrast. I think Japan would be a much better bet (although it might be tough to learn the language that quickly !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) Good luck x

New Zealand? Someone told me their curriculum is different or America? If you are drawn to Japan go for it always a good idea to go for what you is drawn to!

Ok after lots of trawling through research etc Ive decided to go for Japan,Ive found some good studies on the teaching and learning in schools which cover maths so it seems daft not to go with it .
I have some great comparisons, eg
Japanese schools do not have ability grouping
only 2% of maths lessons involve the use of text books but textbooks that are used cover far fewer topics but at greater depth.
Japanese students get little or no homework but choose to study 1 hr per evening towards their exams.(cant imagine that happening here some how lol)
Maths lessons focus on mathematical reasoning and understanding
Ive found it all very interesting which in Mrs Ps world = a better essay !!!
Its only 2000 words so im hoping to get it sorted asap as I have a dyslexia one to write before I go back to uni but at least it will be 2 more ticked off my list = 5 more things before I finish in May !!
