Mathematics is important subject in our daily life. It is compulsory subject in school level in all over the word but nowadays students are indifference toward learning mathematics. Those indifferences related to pedagogical practice in mathematics class room. The main purpose of this study is to explore pedagogical practices in mathematical class room. To meet our objective, we have analyzed books, journals articles, research paper, forum, reports and online documents Pedagogical approach plays the important role for meaningful learning in mathematics teaching in classroom. In our teaching was teacher centered, in accordance with behaviorism pedagogical approach with absolutism philosophy. We recommend mathematics teacher to use constructivism, integrative, inquiry base, reflective and activity base pedagogical practice for self-directed learning in mathematics classroom.
