A new approach to mathematics education

Keeping apace with western countries, Azerbaijan and Iran have recently revised their mathematics curriculum moving from a traditional teacher-based approach to a new interactive student-based approach. As teachers from Azerbaijan and Iran, we will share our experiences and observations as we transitioned from learning and teaching with the traditional curriculum and classroom methods to learning and teaching with the new curriculum and student-centered mathematics methods.
