Complexity science is in the forefront of contemporary scientific development; its rise and development triggered the breakthrough and innovation of methodology in scientific research. Curriculum is a complex adaptive system. Complexity curriculum research also includes nonlinearity, uncertainty, self-organization and emergent properties.
To look at and examine the school curriculum from a complex scientific theory helps us understand, interpret, and handle complex curriculum issues, and helps us to master the complexity of the curriculum system during the practice of specific curriculum reform. At the same time, it also has some practical significance and inspiration value for our understanding and awareness of the current systemic reform of basic education: its curriculum, complexity, difficulties. Now, the complexity of curriculum studies is in the ascent, although its research mission still has a long way to go. We’re just on the road.
