In this paper, we are interested in curricula contents related to the addition and subtraction concepts. A comparative study between Turkey, France and United Kingdom is carried out in order to identify different learning methods adopted and to evaluate these methods according to the educational system of each country. The results show that main differences between three countries curricula are due to the structures of pre-school systems and to the use of technology. (C) 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
