Abstract: 
In this study we report the secondary analysis of the gender-related data from the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study in 2003 and 2007 (TIMSS 2003 & 2007) for Singapore students in Mathematics. It was noted that girls in Singapore performed significantly better than boys in TIMSS 2007 at both grades 4 and 8 in mathematics. Similar results for mathematics were obtained in the TIMSS 2003 whereby, in addition, girls from Singapore performed better than boys in all reported content domains at grades 4 and 8.
