Abstract: 
In 1999, the Third International Mathematics and Science Study
(TIMSS) was replicated at the eighth grade. This study known as
TIMSS–R or TIMSS-1999 was designed to provide trends in eighth
grade mathematics and science achievement in an international context.
This paper reviews the mathematics achievement of Eighth graders from
five South East Asian countries (Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines,
Singapore and Thailand) that participated in TIMSS-1999. The
achievement data show significant differences amongst eighth graders
from South East Asia. The paper also reviews the intended mathematics
curriculum of these countries and attempts to explore factors that may
have contributed towards high achievement.
