    Abstract

    Indonesian students score in the bottom group in International tests for mathematics and science, like the “Program for International Student Assessment” test (known as Pisa). Of course, these results are worrying the Indonesian Government. In many countries, disappointing Pisa results combined with dissatisfaction by corporate leaders and employers with the skills of school leavers, and with an analysis of the needs of the future societies, has started a debate about education. This led policy makers into making decisions about future educational targetsand starting educational improvement initiatives. The goals of these initiatives are often to raise the countries position on the Pisa scale. Australia is an example of the impact of Pisa on educational policy. Australia’s government committed themselves to place Australia ‘in the top five countries internationally in reading, mathematics and science by 2025” (Commonwealth of Australia, 2013, p. 5). Keywords:Mathematics, science, learning, dutch
