This research will mainly discuss the improvement in mathematics from the perspective of external and internal factors. Math test may not be appropriate to all students, however, it is an irreplaceable part of China’s university entrance exam. Moreover, native students and immigrant students do not receive equal math education. The environment of study, including comments from parents, teachers and classmates significantly affect the academic performances of students. Most of the suggestions in this research is well-accepted, and hypothesis is proved to be correct. In conclusion, measures, such as providing a peaceful learning environment and interactions between teachers and students, and doing more exercises and summaries, should be taken to promote students’ understanding of new knowledge.
