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).
