This study aims to determine types of mathematic disciplines (in term of topics) in Jordanian Elementary textbooks. This study evaluates mathematics text books especially in the period between 1970 and 2013 and identifies types and quantities of mathematics. To examine the relative quantity of mathematics, branches of mathematics, presentation means, and methods, books were analyzed using content analysis protocols. As a result, this work has shown a significant increase in mathematics enhancement in terms of quality and quantity in Jordanian elementary textbook. Such enhancement is relevant to the advantage of new technology based on mathematical algorithms. In addition, this research has pointed out the growth in geometry while numbers of mathematics show a decline in return as of 2013. Based on this study the recommendation concluded is to further develop textbooks in order to meet NCTM requirements.
