This article is a qualitative study, which was done in 2013-2014. In this study using a comparative study was conducted to compare physics curriculum elements of Iran with the countries studied. Countries studied: Singapore, Turkey, India, England and Australia have diverse educational system. In this study, the structure of the educational system, the physics curriculum, teaching methods, students' achievement evaluation methods were studied and compared. The aim of the research was to identify the Features of the physics curriculum in Iran. In some cases, similarities and differences were observed. From the major problems in the physics curriculum of Iran is many number of books is more than in other countries. And time teaching physics Iranian schools is less than in other countries, While the content of physics books of Iranian schools from all countries studied is further and to do physics experiments in Iranian schools are of less importance. Iran evaluation system is the traditional way and held for final evaluation. The results can help to educational planners and authors of physics textbooks for perform more accurate and more comprehensive correction to the physics curriculum.
