In Search of an East Asian Identity in Mathematics Education--The Legacy of an Old Culture and the Impact of Modern Technology.
Leung, Frederick K. S.
This paper reports on an attempt to formulate an East Asian theory of mathematics education. Six features of East Asian mathematics education are discussed and contrasted with features and values in Western education. These factors include product versus process, rote learning versus meaningful learning, extrinsic versus intrinsic motivation, and subject matter knowledge versus pedagogical knowledge in teachers. The impact of modern technology on the teaching of mathematics is also discussed. (Contains 29 references.) (MM)
