The present study explored the effects of the national and cultural contexts on students’ mathematics achievement. The study also investigated the nature and magnitude of student-level (level 1), school-level (level 2), and country-level (level 3) factors that are associated with math achievement. The Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) 2018 datasets were used. The findings of HLM analysis showed that mathematics achievement is associated with national and cultural contexts since the study found 31.30% of the total variation was accounted for level 3 in math achievement. Also, the study found that various predictors were statistically significant for explaining math achievement. Moreover, the study found several counterintuitive association phenomena due to the shift of meaning. These findings were explained regarding practical and theoretical implications for policymakers, educators, and researchers to improve students’ mathematics achievement.
