         The objectives of this research were to 1) study the basic information 2) develop curriculum 3) try and test the effectiveness of the curriculum and 4) improve the curriculum of “M30295 Mathematical Project” for Mathayomsuksa 6 students, through active learning with self-directed learning. Samples were 30-students in Mathayomsuksa 6 class 1 in the first semester of academic year 2019. The research tools comprised of interview form, document analysis form, assessment form, achievement test, and attitude test. Data analysis used were content analysis, percentage, mean, standard deviation, and relative gain score.

          The basic information research showed that teachers in Mathayomsuksa 6 and head of mathematics learning groups agreed to develop the curriculum of “M30295 Mathematical Project” for Mathayomsuksa 6, the results of the curriculum development showed that the curriculum “M30295 Mathematical Project” consisted of 6-components; 1) principles, 2) objectives, 3) content, 4) process, 5) learning media, and 6) measurement and evaluation. The results of try and testing of the curriculum’s effectiveness showed that achievement, self-directed learning, and mathematical attitude of students after implementing this curriculum were higher than before. The results of curriculum improvement showed that the content, process, and learning media of the curriculum should be improved.
