1). According to Robitaille and Nicol (1994), the design of SIMS was quite different from the FIMS. The SIMS was curriculum-based and focused on the study of mathematics through three different levels: • the intended curriculum: the mathematics intended for learning by national and system-level authorities • the implemented curriculum: the curriculum as interpreted by teachers and presented to students • the attained curriculum: the curriculum learned by students and determined by their achievement and attitudes (Travers and Westbury 1989, pp.

Leung indicates that Beijing teachers emphasized the content of mathematics; Hong Kong teachers emphasized mathematical skills, while London teachers emphasized active learning and enjoying mathematics (p. 312). He suggested that the classroom practices of Beijing teachers reflected a more rigid view of mathematics than the practices in Hong Kong and London. There was also a much greater stress on memorization in the teaching at Beijing. He also found that classroom teaching in all three places was influenced to some extent by examinations, but this was not explained in detail.

Her study was praised for her focus on real understanding as opposed to mere computational competence. However, Sherman (2000) points out: But most NCTM reformers believe that understanding comes from ‘constructivist’, or discovery learning. They give low priority to computational skills (unnecessary, they say, if students have calculators). Their goal is not to teach traditional mathematical subjects as logically coherent systems but to develop ‘higher-order’ thinking skills that are supposed to be transferable to all subjects.
