Abstract:

Using curriculum analysis measurement techniques first developed for the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), this paper presents a comparison of the government designed and implemented secondary school mathematics curriculum for state schools in Pakistan, also referred to locally as the matric (short for matriculation) against the Ordinary Level Mathematics Curriculum designed by University of Cambridge International Examinations and taught exclusively at private schools in Pakistan. The paper focus primarily on the content analysis of course syllabi to compare the elements of the syllabus that are similar/different and attempt to determine which elements of the syllabus are emphasized in one track versus the other. The TIMSS metric will be used to benchmark these intended curricula with other work characterized international patterns in mathematics intended curricula, to further characterize these college-bound mathematics tracks in Pakistan. Additionally, school-leaving examinations used in each track will be analyzed to determine where the focus of the assessments lie and to measure the alignment between the examinations and the learning expectations set forth in the syllabi.
