Through the direct detection and quantitative analysis of 44 concepts related to trigonometric functions in the mathematical cognitive structure of the 213 students in grade one in senior middle school, this paper finds that the mathematical cognitive structure of senior high school students has the following characteristics: In the cognitive structure of the mind, knowledge can be divided into different blocks according to the degree of relevance, the basis and the scale of the blocks, the degree of interaction in the block and between the blocks are not the same. The knowledge in a good cognitive structure should be organized in the form of blocks, and the blocks have a more scientific basis. The members in block have more obvious common features and each block is relatively large and covers more knowledge points. The block is closely linked, in addition, there must be a higher intensity of the link between the blocks, which can make the entire network of knowledge as a whole, and then it is conducive to the flow of information.
