Abstract

Abstract: With the increasing attention to the importance of instructional technology at all educational levels in the United States, one expects Asian countries, such as China to have a superior classroom instructional structure in technology to support the high achievement in mathematics and science education. In this paper I describe the on-site observations of mathematics and science classrooms in China; first hand data obtained from Chinese educators and students through interviews;and discussions with college faculty members and school teachers on effective pedagogy in conducting mathematics and science curriculum. The findings of this project coincided with outcomes concluded in the other studies and raise the question on the role that technology plays in the achievement of mathematics and science learning.
