A Monographic Study of Mathematical Thinking in the Field of Early Education from the Perspective of Subject Quality

Erjing Zhang

Abstract—This paper analyzes the current circumstances of the mathematical thinking training industry in the field of preschool education in China under the supply-demand theoretical framework in the first place. On the demand side, the author summarizes how elements such as policy guidance, upgraded distribution of public consumption, upgraded parents’ attitudes toward children’s education drive the thriving period of mathematical thinking. On the supply side, this paper finds through statistics that after ten years of development, now mathematical thinking training institutions in the market can be divided into online and offline institutions, traditional tycoons and emerging enterprises. In addition, the author discusses the present teaching system of mathematical thinking training in China and makes a summary from two aspects --- teaching mode and curriculum setting. Last, based on the analyses above, this paper identifies the future trends of this area in terms of technological convergence and regional distribution.

Index Terms—Mathematical thinking, preschool education, quality-oriented education, subject education.
