Abstract: 
Singaporean students’ top-level performance in the TIMSS studies in mathematics has
strong connections to the mathematics curriculum in the country. While mathematics
curricula tend to be somewhat similar in countries all over the world, there are some subtle
differences in the Singaporean mathematics curriculum, which are worth examining. In this
paper, I describe some of the important features of the intended, attained and implemented
aspects of the mathematics curriculum in Singapore and how they connect to the TIMSS
studies. I also briefly comment on the strengths and weaknesses of the curriculum.
