Mathematical curriculum and textbooks(1) Vietnamese national mathematical curriculum is designed and determined by the Ministry of Education and Training (MoET) All Vietnamese school textbooks are published by a special publisher named the Educational Publishing House Typically, there is a unique nationwide series of curricula and textbooks for Vietnamese school.
During the early 1990s until the late 1990s, there were three series of high school textbooks (for some subjects) written by three different groups of authors from : Hanoi University of Education, Ho Chi Minh City’s University of Pedagogy The National Institute for Educational Sciences (NIES) In 2000, these series were corrected, edited and unified to make a unique series called “corrected and unified the year 2000 textbook” Mathematical curriculum and textbooks(2)

Mathematics curriculum and textbooks in middle school immoderately focuses on pure theory and did not take enough notice of practical.
Methods of teaching mathematics Most school mathematics teachers in vietnam use two teaching styles (are poorly developed) : A teacher reads, students write Training for examsmathematics Teachers do not train their students in applying mathematics in real life or in other subjects
