The article’s purpose is to study the application of reversed-class model in mathematical education to develop self-studying (autodidactic) ability of primary students in Vietnam, based on the analysis of the nature and characteristics of reversed-class model, and the relationship in mathematical autodidactic ability between primary-school and reversed-class students to analyze the impacts of reverse-class model to the development of self-studying ability for primary students in Vietnam. At the same time, from actual survey results on the use of reverse-class model in teaching of mathematics for primary students in three regions such as North, Central and South regions, the article has illustrated the application of reversed-class model to develop mathematical autodidactic ability for students in some localities in Vietnam. The research results elucidated the use of reversed-class model in math education which has contributed to develop self-studying capacity for primary students in Vietnam.
