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 2D and 3D 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.
