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.
