The aim of this study was to evaluate the level of alignment of mathematics textbook for the grades 7, 8 and 9 with the corresponding textbooks produced by McGraw-Hill. Content analysis tool was designed to include specifications, indicators and demonstrations which extract from the McGraw-Hill series and related literature. After validity and reliability of the tool were checked, team of four researchers was trained to apply the tool. Finding showed that the level of alignment was moderate in terms of educational specifications, while the level of alignment was high for the technical specifications. The study offered recommendations in order to increase the level of alignment in student textbook with the reference to areas that require improvements.
