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.
