Abstract
With the development of information technology and Internet technology,
how making mathematics teaching to meet the demands of the times
has become the focus of mathematicians, mathematics educators and
mathematics teachers. According to the experiences of many countries,
it is thought that information technology is the basic element in
mathematics teaching and the necessary tool for teaching mathematics,
learning mathematics and doing mathematics. Our country*s standard
on mathematical curriculum will consider the integration of mathematics
with information technology as the elementary idea. Many mathematics
textbooks attach importance to the affect of information technology.
The information technology will make the students to be closer to
the mathematics concept, have mathematical experiences, and would
be the more active learners?It can set teachers and students free
from fussy and boring formal manipulation. They can spend more time
on mathematics understanding, reasoning, numerical concepts and
its application. Integration of information technology can realize
the substitution of traditional and new contents; can show the growing
procedure of mathematical knowledge for the students. It changes
the traditional teaching style. We must make great efforts to renew
the contents of mathematics course, update mathematics teaching
assessment, and explore how to construct efficient teaching information
resources and learning environment for mathematics teaching, make
the modern informational technology become the powerful assistant
for students to learn mathematics and do mathematics, and the tools
for students to understand mathematical concepts and to explore
mathematical problems.
