Salt Lake City, UT – The TIMMS standardized testing system shows students in Singapore do better in mathematics than any other country, while the United States lags far behind. That has some members of the Utah legislature urging Utah schools to adopt the curriculum and teaching methods used in that country. KUER's Dan Bammes looks at the movement to bring Singapore Math to Utah's public schools.
