This study aimed to analyze
geometry content of math text books for first grade to sixth
grade in Jordan, along with the National Council of Teachers
of Mathematics (NCTM). The researcher analyzed the content
of these text books for geometry subject, trying to ally
these standards to (NCTM) standards. 21 standards determined
and divided into four categories. Four categories ranged
between not available to highly available reflecting
inconsistency geometry content to some extent in accordance
with geometry standards of the National Council Teachers of
Mathematics (NCTM). This result agreed with Gonzalezgomez
study (Gonzalezgomez, 1994). Pickreign and Capps (2000)
reported that more attention and professionalism should be
applied when writing math curricula.
Keywords: Geometry, Content Analysis, National Council Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM).
