    • Teachers are the heart of learning
    • Passively absorb the knowledge
    • Objective rules
    • Learning key is memorizing
    • Words and symbols
    • Listening to the teachers
    • Knowledge transform
    • Students are the heart of teaching
    • Actively construct the knowledge
    • Subjective experiences
    • Learning key is understanding
    • Meaningful context
    • Discussion with classmates
    • Knowledge construct
    Traditional Mathematics Constructive Mathematics
  • 3.
    • Yang’s Theory: CM can help students easily build up their own concept toward the questions.
    • Nodding’s Theory: learning environment of CM required highly interactive between students and teachers.
    • Chang’s and Chiu’s theory : CM should not apply in Taiwan.
    • Chiu’s theory: CM can only adopted by gifted students.

    • To investigate Math teachers’ and parents’ opinions toward
    • Constructive Mathematics.

  • 10. Discussion
    • Students like math and do not think it is a boring subject.
    • However, they do not understand math more through CM.
    • Both sides highly agreed that it makes no sense to learn math by CM.
  • 11.
    • The answer “CM is helpful for the students to learn mathematics in certain chapters.” supports Yang’s theory.
    • The Ministry of Education should be more considerate before adopted any theory or concept.
  • 12.
    • “ If changed CM back to old concept can help the students have a better understanding in Math.”
    • This is partly contrary to Chang’s and Chiu’s theory.
  • 13.
    • Teachers indicated that it is good for Taiwan to diversify the learning concept.
    • But CM need a better adjust and development.
    • Parents concerned the consequences about changing the learning concept again.
  • 14.
    • Teachers agreed “CM do help the interaction between teachers and students” support Nodding’s theory.
    • Parents agreed “CM could help students learning math easier.”
  • 15. Conclusion
    • CM helps the first and second grade students in learning and building the basic concept.
    • However, CM poses learning difficulty for the third to sixth grade students.
    • CM can increase the level of class interaction between teachers and students.
