Abstract
This study was executed in M elementary school for a week, T elementary school for a week, N high school for a week, and S high school for a week in 2000. There were mathematics teacher interviews, mathematics classroom observations, and student interviews in each school. We can draw the conclusion from this study as follows. Firstly, the teaching of mathematics in both elementary and high school was very good in the standard of mathematical concepts, procedures, and connection. Secondly, it is very good in the standard of mathematics as problem solving, reasoning, and communication. Thirdly, it is not so good in the standard of promoting mathematical disposition. Fourthly, it is good in elementary schools, but not in high schools regarding the standard of assessing students' understanding of mathematics. Fifthly, it is very good in elementary schools, but not so good in high schools regarding the standard of learning environments.
