Abstract
TIMSS measurement shows that students in the world get quite different mathematics achievement in different countries. Students’ mathematics achievement is influenced by many factors such as teachers, schools, parents and so on. It’s complicated to explain what leads to these different performance between students. This paper aims to find how teacher’s factors influence students’ mathematics performance by comparing mathematics teachers of grade four in Chinese Taipei and Yemen who have participated in TIMSS 2011.The differences between them are shown by analyzing the datas of teachers questionnaires in TIMSS 2011. The result indicates that teachers’ education degree, majors, teaching experience, professional development, preparation degree, confidence degree and career satisfaction are important factors to influence students’ achievement. The students get better achievement when their teachers are better in these aspects.
