Mathematics

A.        Subject Information

Introduction
Mathematics is essential in the school curriculum of Hong Kong, as it is:
  1. a powerful means for developing various abilities in a technology-oriented and information-rich society;
  2. a powerful means of communication;
  3. a tool for studying other disciplines;
  4. an intellectual endeavour and a mode of thinking; and
  5. a discipline, through which students can develop their ability to appreciate the beauty of nature, manage uncertainty and make sound judgements.
Mathematics education also plays an active role in STEM education, and supports the learning of other subjects. It contributes significantly to the whole-person development of students in primary and secondary schools, prepares them for multiple pathways to post-secondary education and future careers, and hence plays an important role in the Hong Kong school curriculum.
 

Aims/Objectives

Our aims include providing co-curricular activities, emphasising daily life application and strengthening linkages between syllabuses, so as to enrich students' learning experience, enabling students of varying abilities to have multi-faceted development through the diverse projects of the Excellent Credit Programme, projects including Mathematics competitions, reading reports, project learning, model making, STEM assignments, etc. Conducting timely reviews on the effectiveness of the programme, with an aim to enable students to broaden knowledge via various means and also motivating students to take part in a multitude of gifted education activities and competitions to draw on more learning opportunities, whereby cultivating a learning atmosphere of self-regulated learning and pursuit of academic excellence.

With Interest, Confidence, Engagement (I.C.E) as a guiding principle, the teachers can design high-quality lessons, lifting student participation in class.

(*): I: Interest Students are interested in learning
  C: Confidence Students are confident about learning
  E: Engagement Students take the initiative to learn and pursue knowledge
