  • Mathematics teachers have been widely criticized for not teaching their students to think critically. The purpose of this paper is to determine the cognitive level of thinking in the curriculum based on the Anderson and Krathwohl Taxonomy. The Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) mathematics syllabus for one strand was analyzed to determine the cognitive levels of the specific objectives and their corresponding teaching and learning activities. The majority of the objectives were skewed towards lower order thinking skills while the learning activities included a variety of higher order thinking skills.
