According to the division of three levels and four aspects of mathematical calculation literacy in the General Senior High School Mathematics Curriculum Standard, we used questionnaires and statistical analysis to analyze the support of examples and exercises for mathematical calculation literacy in the first volume of compulsory textbooks of general high school mathematics. The result shows that the example part of the textbook supports the implementations of nine aspects of mathematical calculation literacy. In all these nine aspects, the support of level 2 of knowledge and skill is the best. However, level 1 of situation and problem, level 3 of knowledge and skill, and level 3 of communication and reflection are not supported. As for the exercise part of the textbook, this part supports the implementations of 11 aspects of mathematical calculation literacy. Among them, level 2 of communication and reflection is supported mostly, while level 1 of the situation and problem is totally not. Therefore, in order to use the examples and exercises more effectively, we suggest that the examples and exercises in the textbook should be selected and elaborated. Only in that way, they can play a role in the maximum extent and help more to cultivate students' mathematical calculation literacy.
