Norway – Curricula for mathematics in schools ( 1- 13)

Compulsory school, i.e. primary and lower secondary school (grades 1 – 10) and upper secondary school (grades 11-13) have a common document: Core Curriculum for primary, secondary and adult education in Norway.  The Core curriculum presents the aims, general philosophy and information.
