Singapore math a success so far in Fayette Co.
By Jim Warren - jwarren@herald-leader.com

".....Polly Anna Cox taught a calendar math lesson to her fifth-grade class at Liberty Elementary School, one of nine Fayette County schools that instituted a full Singapore math curriculum this year. Cox says she is teaching math at a "much higher level now."...

Participating students are using a textbook called Math in Focus, which essentially is identical to the text used by about 80 percent of elementary students in Singapore, a tiny Asian city-state whose kids have been hitting the ball out of the park on international math assessments since the late 1990s. Fayette County is hoping for similar results."

:D
