This study aimed to compare the learning effectiveness of 11th grade indigenous students who received example-based math instruction (experimental group) and those who received conventional textbook-based math instruction (control group), as well as explore any changes in their attitude towards and interest in learning. We also surveyed the experimental group about their views of example-based teaching, the results of which can serve as reference for indigenous education. This was a quasi-experimental study using a two-group design as well as pre- and post-testing. We sampled a total of 32 indigenous 11th graders, who were categorized into experimental and control groups of 16 subjects each. All subjects attended six 50-min classes over a period of one week. After the experiment, we compared the two groups in terms of learning achievements, attitude towards and interest in learning. All data was analysed using statistical software and the main findings are as follows: (1) The learning achievements of the experimental group significantly exceeded those of the control group. (2) Example-based math instruction provides students with ample learning opportunities and contributes to adaptive education; it is worthy of further research. (3) Example-based math instruction improved students’ attitude towards and interest in learning.

Key words: Cognitive load theory, efficiency of instruction, problem schema, math instruction.
