Insight into the Development of Mathematics Teaching: A Comparative Study of Two Videotaped Lessons
Li, Shiqi ; Yang, Yudong ;
Research in Mathematical Education, volume 11, issue 3, 2007, Pages 165~176
From the perspective of phenomenongraphy(根据登的象式), two videotaped mathematics lessons were observed, compared and analyzed, and the features of those times were extracted. The quantitative and qualitative analysis of the global structure and the questioning in the lessons etc. showed that in teaching behaviors there were some essential differences reflecting the impact of new beliefs and principles of teaching. Evidences also show that excellent teachers did keep and carry on the good tradition teaching for basic knowledge and basic skills were seen as the most important thing in mathematics teaching in China.
A Hypermedia Video-Case: A New Tool for Teachers' Professional Development
Bao, Jiansheng ;
Research in Mathematical Education, volume 11, issue 3, 2007, Pages 177~184
The purpose of this paper is to introduce the development of a new Lesson Video-Case Lab (LVCL) program in Suzhou, China. This program involves the creation of several series of hypermedia video-cases on teaching and learning designed to facilitate mathematics teachers' professional development. Each of these video-cases consists of lesson clips, case questions, interviews with experts, comments by peers, responses by students and other related resources. The study has implications pertaining to the use of technology in teacher development, the production of hypermedia video-cases, as well as research on case-based pedagogy and pedagogy in general.
A Comparison between Editions A and B of Experimental Textbooks in Ordinary Senior High Schools in China

Research in Mathematical Education, volume 11, issue 3, 2007, Pages 185~196
In order to study the new curriculum, as well as to help teachers understand new textbooks well, the authors make horizontal comparisons between Editions A and B of Experimental Mathematics (2) textbook in ordinary senior high schools (Grades 10-12) of PEP Edition, which focuses on the topic of line slope. The interview was made with 11 selected teachers who are teaching the content in the light of Edition B. It was found that there are obvious differences in the introduction of concepts and the exercises. The interviews showed that teachers were familiar to the contents of Edition A and saw it reasonable, because few differences are found between Edition A and the old Edition. The teachers also viewed that though the contents of Edition B were easy and fit to self-educated, but its reasoning is not clear, and the examples are not enough so that the teachers need to add additional examples.
A Study on the Relationship between Temperament and Mathematics Academic Achievement
Li, Mingzhen ; Pang, Kun ;
Research in Mathematical Education, volume 11, issue 3, 2007, Pages 197~207
Based on a survey on 1620 students in primary school and secondary school., by adopting Eysenck Personality Questionnaire (EPQ), we got the following findings : 1. There is close relationship between emotionality characteristics of temperament and mathematics academic achievement of the subjects at Grade 5 (Primary 5), Grade 8 (Junior Secondary 2), and Grade 10 (Senior Secondary 2). Also there is close relationship between internal-external directivity characteristics of temperament and mathematics academic achievement at Grade 5 and Grade 8. While there is not close relationship between internal-external directivity characteristics of temperament and mathematics academic achievement at Grade 10; 2. There is close relationship between temperament types and mathematics academic achievement of the subjects from the three grades. Superior temperament, which benefit learning mathematics, are sanguine, sanguine-phlegmatic and phlegmatic; While inferior temperament types, which don't benefit learning mathematics, are choleric, melancholic and choleric-melancholic. With the rising of grade, temperament types of benefiting learning mathematics converts from external directivity emotion balance to balance of internal-external directivity emotion stability. While temperament of no benefiting learning mathematics converts from internal directivity emotion balance to balance of internal-external directivity emotion instability; 3. In mathematics education, students' temperament difference, which affects learning mathematics, should be recognized. Mathematics teachers should find out the best teaching ways, forms and methods which are suitable for student's temperament type, so that the students with different temperament types can gain better mathematics academic achievement.
Developing Geometry Software for Exploration-Geometry Player
Yuan, Yuan ; Lee, Chun-Yi ; Huang, Jiung-Rong ;
Research in Mathematical Education, volume 11, issue 3, 2007, Pages 209~218
The purpose of this study is to create an interactive tool Geometry Player for geometric explorations. In designing this software, we referred to van Hiele's geometric learning theory of and Duval's cognitive comprehension theory of geometric figures. With Geometry Player, it is easy to construct and manipulate dynamic geometric figures. Teachers can easily present the dynamic process of geometric figures in class, and students can use it as a leaning tool to construct geometric concepts by themselves. It is hoped that Geometry Player can be a useful assistant for teachers and a nice partner for students. A brief introduction to Geometry Player and some application examples are included in this paper.
