Mathematics (with M1/M2)

Objectives

  • To help students acquire and apply high-order thinking skills such as problem-solving skills, inquiring skills, communicating skills, reasoning skills and conceptualising skills;
  • To develop students’ abilities to communicate with others and express their views clearly and logically in mathematical language;
  • To develop students’ abilities to manipulate numbers, symbols and other mathematical objects;
  • To build up students’ number sense, symbol sense, spatial sense, measurement sense and the ability to appreciate structures and patterns;
  • To develop students’ interest in and positive attitude towards the learning of mathematics;
  • To strengthen students’ competence and confidence in everyday mathematics applications outside the classroom and provide a basis for further work and studies;
  • To develop appreciation towards the aesthetic nature and cultural aspects of mathematics.

Features

1. Promote self-learning

To enable students to develop the habit of self-study, we have selected a series of topics in the mathematics curriculum from Secondary One to Secondary Five  and tailor-made some self-learning packages for students. Through the self-learning packages, students are expected to experience the applications of mathematics outside the classroom and to build up their interest in mathematics.

2. Use of multiple teaching modes

In line with students' learning needs, diversified teaching modes such as games, group discussions, inquiry activities outside classroom have been integrated into our lessons. Students can thus learn and apply mathematical concepts in different aspects.

3. Promote e-Learning

In order to improve the effectiveness of teaching, e-Learning tools such as online teaching resources and apps are used in teaching. Students can then learn mathematics in a more concrete way.

Achievements

Besides the HKDSE, our students have participated in various large-scale mathematics competitions such as the Hong Kong Mathematics Olympiad and the Pui Ching Invitational Mathematics Competition, and won outstanding awards. In 2012, our school team got a Merit in the Hang Lung Mathematics Awards organised by Department of Mathematics, the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
