Abstract: This paper explores Estonian and Finnish compulsory schools’ teachers views about mathematics textbooks and how they perceive the textbooks in mathematics teaching. The data consist of compulsory schools’ teachers’ (N= 420) responses on a 36-item questionnaire and it was analysed by help of quantitative methods. The main findings show that both the Finnish and the Estonian teachers found the textbooks somewhat important in assuring the high and even quality in mathematics teaching. The textbooks did not particularly load the teachers. However, the findings reveal some interesting differences in this respect between contexts and between teachers with different teaching experience. Findings from this study contribute to the research-field by adding research-based knowledge about the relationships between teachers and curriculum materials.
