Conceptual change learning means that students transform, develop and reconstruct their former concepts, it is a conversion course from preconcept to scientific concept. The main cause of misconceptions in mathematics conceptual conversion includes the factors: routine concepts, conceptual imagoes, and transfer. According to constructivism, and based on the theory of conceptual conversion avenue, mechanism and qualification, we ought to adopt the following teaching strategy: we should realize students' mathematics conceptual change learning upon finding out their former concepts, leading to cognition collision and constructing conceptual network.
