Maths books to be translated into English

Since Chinese students are amongst the top performers world wide, the UK has decided to learn from the best. A new alliance has been agreed on, where Chinese Maths books are being translated into English. This will allow British students to learn with the same materials that Chinese pupils use. 36 books will be translated and released at the London Book fair. This cooperation across nations is the first of its kind in history and officials promise great results. Since Chinese students ranked 5th in Maths scores globally, they seem to have the best method of teaching. By implementing the same Maths books, teachers hope to be able to achieve the same results.
