This study investigated Collins’ curriculum problems in the subjects of science and mathematics from experts’ perspective in Jordan. There are some complaints from teachers in Jordan about Collins’ mathematics curriculum which is taught for the first and fourth grades. Many teachers claimed it has not relied on any scientific studies that justified the preference of applying this curriculum over the former curriculum designed by Jordanian curricula experts. The study sample involved (55) experts from Directorates of Education and the Ministry of education Center. A questionnaire was designed to collect data about expert’s views of Collins’ curriculum and its problems. The results revealed that the level of problems came to a medium degree, and there were statistically significant differences at (α ≤ 0.05) in the problems that teachers face in applying Collins’ curriculum according to the variable “years of experience” which was in favor of teachers with “experience less than one year”. The study recommended to revise and develop science and mathematics Collins’ curriculum to be consistent with the Jordanian society’ norms and merge Collins’ curriculum with the previous curriculum rather than completely canceling it.
