**International maths curricula**

The topics that this MESHGuides is based on were chosen from considering curriculums from a range of countries. This was. done by exploring the TIMMS and PIRLS website. The TIMSS 2015 Encyclopedia: Education Policy and Curriculum in Mathematics and Science provides a good range of data and information.
