 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.
