Clark & Starr (1986) found in a study that the amount of memory of students varies depending on the situation: 10% of people can remember the information or knowledge “read”; 20% can remember the “heard” Information; 30% of people can remember what they “see”; 50% of people can remember what they “hear and see”; 70% of people can remember information “said”; 90% can Remember the “said and done” things. Therefore, if the learner only uses reading or listening or seeing methods when studying, the amount of memory of information is limited, but if the learner can do it by hand, it can deepen the impression and increase the memory capacity of information. Although traditional textbooks can assist learners to record external information in words, they still have certain limitations on abstract mathematical knowledge or scientific learning, and the rapid development of computers can make up for this deficiency. Computers can present dynamic images and provide learners with a powerful learning and perceptual experience, enabling learners to be more perceptive to abstract concepts (Fan, 2014).
