Curricula around the world make more and more use of goals trying to capture different kind of processes for the students to master. For mathematics education in Denmark, these ambitions have been described in terms of a set of mathematical competencies. However, bringing such competencies into the actual teaching practices has proved challenging. Matematrix is a Danish mathematics textbook system for grades k-9 designed to support the mathematics teachers in facing this challenge. In this paper, I – as one of the designers and authors of the textbooks – present one of the key elements in this endeavour: A three-dimensional content and objectives model combining mathematical competencies, mathematical core concepts and grade level. Following that, I exemplify the use of the model at three different levels of textbook design: The structuring of the content for the books in general, the focal points for each chapter in the various books and the development of tasks for a specific chapter.
