ab: Summary: The teaching philosophy of a teacher is influenced by the opinions
he has about education and his scientific discipline, as well as the
social environment. In which way the above mentioned factors are
affecting our mathematics teachers, what their views are on education
and mathematics directing their teaching practices, and how important
our students are for teachers\rq choices of teaching methodology,
however, is not available in the literature, especially targeting
Chinese educational practice. The current study designs four teaching
methodologies based on the Chinese mathematics teaching situation. It
represents four teaching philosophies in mathematics. Investigations
using questionnaires for teachers and a sample study method
accomplished by mathematics students are employed to detect the factors
affecting teachers\rq teaching philosophy and evaluate their effects.
