This article presents a qualitative study on individual curricula on teaching analytic geometry and linear algebra in higher secondary schools and is focused on content and goals of education. The individual curricula of nine teachers are analysed, compared, and classified into two types. The results are linked to didactical proposals, leading to the observation that the didactic community underestimates the potential of a traditional curriculum and that only one of the two types fulfils some didactic core proposals, like a focus on applications, a process-oriented view on mathematics, and an emphasis on “more general” goals of education, and not on specialised mathematical skills.
