Fufa Esayas Meleta ; Weizhong Zhang

摘要(Abstract):

The main objective of this study is to compare the rationale of the senior secondary mathematics curriculum standard in Ethiopia and Australia. The study was investigated qualitatively with document analysis and semi-structured interview as methods of research. The documents were analyzed and supported by interviews. The rationale of senior secondary mathematics curriculum in Ethiopia and Australia were analyzed and compared through five themes. The study revealed both similarities and differences of the rationale between two countries. The study indicated that the substantial difference in their rationale is the underlying principle of content standard organization. Even though considerable difference exists, the similarities are: the adoption of constructivist approach, the objectives of mathematics teaching and the notions of active leaning approaches in teaching and learning mathematics. By acknowledging the similarities, the study concluded with recommendations. To improve the quality of mathematics education in Ethiopia, Mathematics teachers should be given continuous (pre-service and in-service) training on the existing curriculum/syllabus, especially, on the constructivism, active learning and continuous assessment. Unless, it is hardly possible to achieve the purpose the curriculum was reformed for.
