Perceptions of Mathematics Curricula and Teaching in China
Moy, Robert; Peverly, Stephen T.
Psychology in the Schools, v42 n3 p251-258 Mar 2005
China and other East Asian countries (Japan, South Korea, Taiwan) have consistently outperformed the United States and other Western countries in mathematics achievement. As part of a Fulbright-sponsored trip to China in the Summer of 2002, a New York City public school teacher and a trainer of school psychologists offer their impressions of some of the reasons for these differences. Their impressions are based on observations of schools and classrooms, review of curricula, and a review of the literature. Four areas are covered: textbooks, curricula, teaching practices, and teacher knowledge. (Contains 1 footnote.)
