APEC Human Resources Development Working Group on Mathematics Education
International comparison studies have found significantly different levels of achievement and practice in mathematics education in the East and West.
  • Asian educational systems generally produce students with a strong grasp of the content knowledge, with higher scores on the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS).
  • Western systems have strengths in applying knowledge to real life situations. Many Western economies are among the most scientifically innovative in terms of such indicators as new scientific patents.
    The pressing issue is how to combine the best of both systems.
    Assessment: analyses of sample assessments, a searchable database of assessment items, and full assessments from APEC economies.
    Standards: sample standards (in English) from 9 APEC economies with comparative analyses.
