Abstract

This paper evaluated the contents of guidance-school mathematics books in Iran according to principles and components of constructive realism. Method: The method of content analysis is used in this study. 5 principles including 22 components were used for doing content analysis. Results: The results showed that two principles (establishing conceptual links between materials inside the book; fostering creativity in order to get learners to create new constructs) are confirmed at the level of 30%. Only one principle (the conceptual link) was confirmed at the levels of 50% and 70%. Conclusion: We conclude and suggest that components of philosophy of mathematics according to constructive realism should be used in providing better math books.
