ab: Summary: Dramatic changes in mathematics education in China have taken
place since the new mathematics curriculum standard was implemented in
2001. What do new features of exemplary lessons appear under the
context of the curriculum reform? This paper will answer this question
by presenting a case study on 13 elementary mathematics lessons that
were evaluated as excellent exemplary lessons by mathematics educators
in China. This study found that, consistent with the ideas advocated by
the new curriculum, the selected lessons demonstrated the features of
emphasizing on student’s overall development, connecting mathematics
to real-life, providing students the opportunities for inquiring and
collaborating, and teachers’ exploiting various resources for
teaching. Meanwhile, the selected lessons also shared other common
features in the lesson structure, interaction between the teacher and
students, classroom discourse. The results reveal that the exemplary
lessons have practiced the advocated ideas of the current reform, while
they also embodied some elements that might be the stable
characteristics of Chinese mathematics education.
