The aim of the study was to examine the availability of instructional materials in primary school mathematics textbooks in terms of grade level and learning domains. In this study, a qualitative approach was preferred according to the aims and characteristics of the research. The document analysis method was used as a research design. The total number of the textbooks which were analyzed in the study was 8. Two different textbooks were analyzed, one from public publication and one from the private publication, were analyzed at each level. The textbooks were investigated in terms of the usage of 30 primary school mathematics instructional materials. According to the results of the analysis, it was found that primary school mathematics instructional materials were used a total of 369 times in the eight textbooks. The materials were used most often at the third-grade level and least often at the first-grade level. It has been determined that the base ten blocks and the ten card sets are the most frequently used instructional materials in the textbooks. According to the learning domains, the use of instructional materials was mostly included in the numbers and operations domain, and the least in the measurement learning domain. In the data-processing learning domain, instructional materials were not included. As a result of the findings, it was concluded that the primary school mathematics instructional materials were not sufficiently included in the textbooks.
