I got a really weird math homework today:find out questions in math textbooks of other parts of the world look like,specifically,how many percent of:
  1. prove questions(questions that says proof xxxx)
  2. pure calculation problems.
  3. Everyday life related questions.
in the whole textbook.The data that I gathered will be in my report.

No equations

The Attempt at a Solution


Well,I already answered the question of my country,Taiwan. It goes like this:
Prove question 10%
Pure calculation question 40%
life related questions 50%
I just want to gather data from as many places as I can:smile:

India has got a number of different boards for education. There are two that are "central boards", schools under these two boards have the same rules and syllabi throughout the country. There are several others managed by the state governments, confined to their regions.

I study in one of the central boards. An approximate answer to your question would be:

Proof-type: 45% (mainly in the field of calculus and trigonometry)
Pure calculation type: 45% (in all other topics)
Life-related questions: 10%

Thanks!
Life-related questions: 10%
Just as I expect.Taiwan has the ridiculous amount of life related questions from elementary school to high school, even with topics that has close to no direct relation to everyday lives,because our schools are trying to add more questions with“math spirits”in it,which is fantasticin the first place,until all questions end up to be things like “Suppose someone’s smile is a quadratic function....)which seems completely meaningless to me.
