Abstract: As part of the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), 14 140 primary school students and 8238 secondary school students in Singapore completed the student questionnaire in 1994. This questionnaire sought their perceptions on how they were learning mathematics in school, spending their time in and out of school and also information on some background variables such as family size, expectations of parents and teachers, and socio-economic status. As part of the same study 380 primaiy school teachers and 272 secondary school teachers too completed the teacher questionnaire in 1994. These teachers were then teaching mathematics to the students in the study. The teacher questionnaire sought data on background variables such as age, gender, qualifications, and so on; and on pedagogical practices and concerns of the teachers. This paper will report on the findings of the surveys and shed light on students' and teachers 'perspectives on mathematics instruction in Singapore schools (primary and secondary).
