Mathematics takes a specific place in the education of any country because the opportunities and success of youth in contemporary society are often dependent on their knowledge and skills exactly in the sphere of mathematics. Information about the status quo of mathematics education in the country is gained in international comparative research on education. The goal of the present research is to reflect the outcomes of the international project “Non-cognitive skills and Singapore learners - international comparison” organized by Singapore National Education Institute about the achievement of 2828 Latvian school learners of grade 9 in doing 12 mathematical sums. These outcomes were compared with Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) 2003 research outcomes that, in turn, made it possible to predict the outcomes of PISA 2012 research in mathematics education as well as evaluate the efficiency of the new standard of education in Latvia in the first six years. The article will also regard the causes of the low achievement of Latvian learners in doing sums in mathematics.
