I am Xuhua Sun. Exposed in western colony (Hong Kong & Macau) for more than ten years, I was interested in rsearching in advantage and disadvantage of Chinese mainland mathematics education from both inside and outside. From curriculum perspective, I found Chinese bianshi (變式) tradition: “one problem multiple solutions”, “one problem multiple solutions” as a daily routine, play vital roles in Chinese curriculum and instruction rarely known in the West. Inspired by this interesting phenomenon and hot variation theory in HK from Ference Marton, Minling Lo and his colleagues, I (with help of N.Y. Wong & C.C. Lam) tried to search and re-search Chinese own mathematics education practice and theory from variation perspective, including the significance of mathematics developed from variation practice (Sun, Wong, & Lam, 2007), its curriculum significance (Sun, Wong, & Lam, 2006), significance for Chinese curriculum reform (Sun, 2012), and its relationship to cultural background in Chinese mathematics education (Sun, 2011). The proposed curriculum framework as a summary of studies above, spiral variation curriculum design (Sun, 2007) theorized the vital advantage of Chinese “indigenous” practice, I hope, would growingly contribute future practice and theory in curriculum and instruction in the world.
