Po Leung Kuk Laws Foundation College

Department of Mathematics

Objectives:

1. Knowledge Domain

To induce children to understand and grasp the knowledge of the following:

  ● the directed numbers and the real number system;

  ● the algebraic symbols to describe relations among quantities and number patterns;

  ● the equations, inequalities, identities, formulas and functions;

  ● the measures for simple 2-D and 3-D figures;

  ● the intuitive, deductive and analytic approach to study geometric figures;

  ● the trigonometric ratios and functions;

  ● the statistical methods and statistical measures;

  ● the simple ideas of probability and laws of probability.

 

2. Skill Domain

To develop the following skills and capabilities in:

  ● basic computations in real numbers and symbols and an ability to judge reasonableness of results;

  ● using the mathematical language to communicate ideas;

  ● reasoning mathematically, i.e. they should conjecture, test and build arguments about the validity of a proposition;

  ● applying mathematical knowledge to solve a variety of problems;

  ● handling data and generating information;

  ● number sense and spatial sense;

  ● using modern technology appropriately to learn and do mathematics;

  ● learning mathematics independently and collaboratively for the whole life.'

 

3. Attitude Domain

To foster the attitudes to:

  ● be interested in learning mathematics;

  ● be confident in their abilities to do mathematics;

  ● willingly apply mathematical knowledge;

  ● appreciate that mathematics is a dynamic field with its roots in many cultures;

  ● appreciate the precise and aesthetic aspect of mathematics;

  ● appreciate the role of mathematics in human affairs;

  ● be willing to persist in solving problems;

  ● be willing to work cooperatively wit h people and to value the contribution of others.

  ● The Curriculum aims at developing students:t

  ● he ability to conceptualize, inquire, reason and communicate mathematically, and to use mathematics to formulate and solve problems in daily life as well as in mathematical contexts;

  ● the ability to manipulate numbers, symbols and other mathematical objects;

  ● the number sense, symbol sense, spatial sense and a sense of measurement as well as the capability in appreciating structures and patterns;

  ● a positive attitude towards mathematics and the capability in appreciating the aesthetic nature and cultural aspect of mathematics.
