Abstract

The author discusses the concepts of applicability and self-made ability when using information technology in teaching, and tries to apply them in developing teaching resources. The questionnaires that correlated with yearly catalogue index of mathematics in Three stages of grade 1-9 curriculum (1-3, 4-5, 6 grade) was designed and made by author, he sampled 165 teachers in 32 elementary schools in south central Taiwan to answer the questionnaires. Finally the author argues that: 1. All concepts of mathematics are fit for using information technology when teaching, especially "statistic and probability" and secondarily "geometry;" 2. The teacher's ability of self-made is significantly correlated with his information attainment. Furthermore, author founded that teachers have the most excellent self-made ability in "statistic and probability" and are short of self-made ability in "geometry" and "numbers and quantity;" 3. All teachers need graphical and multi-media assistance to help students for realizing the Compound concepts of "numbers and quantity" and "geometry;" 4. When the graphical assistance are helpful for showing statistic numbers and realizing geometry concepts, they shows better effects of using information technology in teaching than traditional forms.
