In this article, I will compare school curriculum of
mathematics of different countries. I have taken four countries, Singapore,
Hongkong, Finland and England. There
countries were second, fourth, tenth and thirteenth in PISA 2018, mathematics
ranking. Since, no countries from south Asia had taken part in this test, we
don’t know, actually what is overall performance of south Asian students.

If we compare the general outline of curriculum of different
countries, we can see **Algebra,
Number ( arithmetic ), Geometry , Probability and statistics** is
taught in all countries. **Measurement **is
not taught in Finland, but Finnish curriculum comprises of **thinking skills**
and **Functions** too. **Function **is part of optional Mathematics
curriculum in Nepal.

If we see the NCERT course of India of grade nine, we can
see only number system, algebra, geometry, mensuration and data analysis is
included.

But curriculum prescribed by CDC, Nepal includes Set,
arithmetic, mensuration, algebra, geometry, set and statistics for compulsory
mathematics. Also we have additional mathematics, which includes function,
polynomial, sequence and series, matrix, limit and continuity, coordinate
geometry, trigonometry and transformation.

In general, what we can conclude is Mathematics course is
too vague in Nepalese schools. Many teachers think, students must learn advance
mathematics to cope with difficult problems in college level. Which is generally
not true, as we have seen, many countries do not offer such complex course in
school.

**Conclusion**

We can conclude, the unnecessarily vague curriculum is a
hindrance to joyful learning inside classroom. Because of it, students are
getting poor result every year.
