From APEC HRDWG Wiki
Mathematics standards specify the type of mathematics education that students should receive during the course of their schooling. Mathematics standards are typically organized into five mathematical content areas including: numbers and operations, data and probability, measurement, geometry, and algebra. Standards may also develop desired mathematical abilities such as conceptual understanding, computation, and reasoning skills. Standards help frame mathematics instruction in the classroom and mathematics assessments that check for learning outcomes or results.

Singaporean students rank as high-achieving in many international comparisons and the Singapore educational system holds promise for many lower performing economies.
The APEC publication on informing mathematics standards development compares the content standards context in the United States with similar structures in Hong Kong, Korea, and Singapore, with suggestions for replicating promising practices from the higher-performing economies. This publication was referenced in the US common core standards.
On behalf of APEC and the U. S. Department of Education, Achieve, Inc., the organization active in developing the U.S. Common Core State Standards, conducted an analysis of APEC mathematics and science standards, aiming to qualify how standards are organized and to identify common content and performance expectations of APEC member economies’ standards. A related report on standards development among high-performing APEC members is also available.
