Total of 38 countries had participated in TIMSS-R and focus was the mathematics achievement of 8th graders. In TIMSS video study only 6 counties participated along with the US. Five participated in TIMSS 1999 video study outperformed the US in mathematics achievement. Since the teachers and their decisions on teaching plays significant role in students learning, future US mathematics teachers can learn from accomplished practices in international arena.
