Chen, Jung-chih; Cai, Wang-ting
Online Submission, US-China Education Review v6 n1 p1-11 Jan 2009
This study analyzes the learning expectations related to grades 1-8 algebra across several U.S. states and high performing TIMSS Asian countries and regions, including Singapore, Taiwan and Japan. In order to narrow and focus the investigation, only one topic within the strand is carefully reported. Based on the official curriculum documents, results of this study indicate that the mathematics content, grade placement and cognitive level of learning expectations related to selected topic vary markedly across documents. Thus, these differences in learning expectations result in striking differences in students' opportunity to learn. (Contains 2 figures and 10 tables.)
