Curriculum Overview

The content of secondary school curriculum is the extension of that of primary one. Students need mathematics to meet the dynamic challenges of their future studies, careers or daily life in an information-rich society with rapid development in technology.

The overall aims of the Mathematics Education curriculum are to develop in students: 
  1. the ability to think critically and creatively, to conceptualize, inquire and reason mathematically, and to use mathematics to formulate and solve problems in daily life as well as in mathematical contexts and other disciplines; 
  2. the ability to manipulate numbers, symbols and other mathematical objects; 
  3. number sense, symbol sense, spatial sense, measurement sense and the capacity to appreciate structures and patterns; and 
  4. a positive attitude towards mathematics learning and an appreciation of the aesthetic nature and cultural aspect of mathematics.
