During February and March 2017 the author surveyed 119 mathematic teachers by questionnaires from more than ten primary or lower secondary schools located in Leshan city, Chendu city, and Meishan city all in Sichuan province in China. The author wanted to know about the teachers’ skills of information technology (IT) and the application of IT during their instruction.

Based on the deep analysis of the data from questionnaires, the author resulted from the data as follows: They have recognized the strong impact force of IT in the educational field, that is to say, IT could promote or accelerate the development of education; On the other hand, the teachers always have many good ideals in their instruction but can not implement them for lacking some necessary advanced skills of IT; Coming to the proper application IT, namely, the aspect of the depth fusion of education and IT they think it is difficulty in looking for the connections between IT and education.

Based on the analysis above the author gives some suggestions on carrying forward the depth fusion of IT and education from two aspects: Firstly, we should go on trainning the advanced IT skills of the teachers based on the basic skills of IT; We should emphasize the importance of changing models in learning and teaching, highlight the transforming the role of the teachers, and guide students to independent, cooperative and inquiry-based learning in IT situation.
