Abstract The survey team collected information on the development and use of curriculum from 11 diverse countries around the world. The data shows that a common set of mathematics learning goals are established in almost all countries. However, only a few countries report a substantial role for research in designing and monitoring the development of their curriculum. The data also suggests great variation among countries at the implementation level. Keywords: Standards. Curriculum. Technology. Tracking. Textbooks. Research and Teacher Support.
