Examined the range of mathematics learning opportunities in the U.S., drawing on data gathered for the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS). Analyses reveal a mismatch between the course title and the textbook used for nearly 40% of eighth graders. Significant relationships found were not significant enough to account for the observed variation among schools.Individual student differences represent an inadequate explanation for the observed diversity in curricular opportunities.
