This study aims to explore and provide a landscape of the views of mathematics teachers towards using curriculum adaptation to cater for students’ diversity. There are three research questions this study aims to answer: (a) Teachers’ understanding and attitude of curriculum adaptation; (b) Teachers’ views regarding the effectiveness of the curriculum adaptation to catering for students’ diversity; (c) The kind of support teachers require. The study used a local primary school as a case study. It adopts both questionnaires from all the mathematics teachers and interviews with curriculum leader of the school, as well as the head teacher of mathematics. The results show that teachers are very positive about curriculum adaptation. They believe curriculum adaptation is effective in catering for students’ diversity. However, there are challenges in the process of executing curriculum adaptation. More training regarding the strategies for curriculum adaptation are required.
