This study deals with the case of student-centered discrete mathematics class with cyber lab. First, we provided lecture notes and cyber labs we developed. In particular, discrete mathematics is a course that covers the principles of algorithms. The purpose of this study is to provide students with basic mathematics, aiming to actively participate in the learning process, to improve their abilities and to reach the ultimate goal of student success with confidence. Second, based on interactions, students were able to prepare for the lectures, review, question, answer, and discussion through an usual learning management system of the school. Third, all the students generated materials through one semester, which were reported, submitted, presented and evaluated. It was possible to improve the learning effectiveness through the discussions and implementation of using some easy open source programming language and codes. Our discrete math laboratory could be practiced without any special knowledge of coding.
These lecture models allow students to develop critical thinking skills while describing and presenting their learning and problem-solving processes. We share our experience and our materials including lecture note and cyber lab as well as a possible model of student-centered mathematics class that does not give too much of work load for instructors. This study shares a model that demonstrates that any professor will be able to have an individualized, customized, and creative discrete education without spending much of extra time and assistant, unlike previous research.

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the differences of the mathematics anxiety and mathematical achievement of high school students according to math socialization, and to find out which mathematics anxiety causes have more influence on mathematical achievement and how much it is. For this purposes, the problem of this study as follows: firstly, are there any relationship among mathematical grades, mathematics anxiety, interest and math socialization? secondly, are there any math socialization mathematics predict to mathematical grades, mathematics anxiety, interest? lastly, are there any differences in the mathematical grades, mathematics anxiety, interest according to math socialization level? The subjects of this study consist of 479 students selected for a class of unit, in high schools located in Seoul and metropolitan area, Korea.
In this study, for students math socialization, Jung(2002)'s scale was used. Mathematical anxiety & interest, Huh(1996)'s Mathematics Anxiety Scale was used. The collected data were analyzed by using the 24.0 SPSS program. The data were also tested by using the t-test, pearson correlation and multiple regression.
The major results of this study were as follows: firstly, math socialization, mathematics anxiety, interest and mathematical grades have significantly related each other, secondly, the multiple regression analyses demonstrated that sub factors of math socialization were the significant predictors of mathematical grades, mathematics anxiety and interest, lastly, mathematics grades, and mathematical anxiety and interest have significant differences depending on math socialization.

Reflection and Meta-Cognition became the centered interest as main subjects of the mathematics education studies together with problem solving education in the 1980s. And lots of researches who have concerned with them have been even progressed actively. But, the concept of the reflection and particularly meta-cognition has been pointed out continually because of its ambiguity and uncertainty.
There is almost no researches intended to reveal the concept itself. Although the status of the reflection and/or meta-cognition in mathematics education. Therefore, it is significant at this point in time that the work of examining the concept of the reflection and meta-cognition be accomplished. By this reason, this study tried to examine and find out the essential nature of the concept of reflection and meta-cognition in aspects of mathematics education.
