With the development of society, we expect higher accomplishment in self cultivation of mathematics. Besides learning about basic knowledge of mathematic, we aim at comprehensive development. Since the learning of mathematics in senior high schools plays an essential part in one’s whole life learning, and students mainly learn it in the classroom at school, the emphasis on studying mathematics lies in how efficient the class is; how the teacher teach, and how the students learn. Therefore, it is commanded that we enhance the efficiency of mathematic classes.Based on a lot of previous studies on classroom effectiveness, together with careful study about literature in this field from both aboard and at home, the author conducts a study on mathematic classroom effectiveness of senior high schools. The thesis firstly makes an introduction of its research background from two aspects:the current situation of the education of mathematics in China; the problems existing in the teaching of mathematics in senior high schools. Secondly, the author seeks to give definitions to concepts such as Effective teaching and Classroom effectiveness. Thirdly, the author makes a questionnaire about mathematic classroom effectiveness of senior high schools mainly concerning the following aspects:the influencing factors in mathematic classroom effectiveness of senior high schools; the strategies for improving classroom efficiency.
