In the report, she discussed the significance of mathematic education focus on flexibility. Combined with the cases carried out in practice, the paper analyzed the flexible performance of Chinese students in the literacy of mathematics problems, and the influence that the teaching implementation of mathematics project activities impact on classroom teaching. The data from practical reforms inspired the in-depth discussions of international scholars attending the conference. Under the different cultural background, the scholars shared important issues such as the orientation and direction of mathematics curriculum reform in different cultures.
