1.   Main Objectives

1.1.   To arouse our students’ interest and cultivate their critical thinking in order to improve their understanding and analytical skills.
1.2.   To test our students’ critical, analytical and problem solving skills.
1.3.   To enable our students to apply mathematical and calculating skills in daily life.
1.4.   To enhance our students’ self-learning ability.
1.5.   To boost our students’ thinking and enquiry skills.

2.    Ways of improvement

2.1      In class
P.1     Teach multiplication of 2, 5 and 10 when teaching grouping
P.2–4 Recite multiplication table randomly daily in class.
P.1–6 Teach students to understand and solve problems step by step, by listing integrated analysis chart and by using collaborative
learning.
P.1–2 Do extra supplementary exercises:

1)     Mental Mathematics
2)     Pan Lloyds 26-week Practice for Mathematics

P.3 & 6 Do TSA mock exercises.

1
P.5     Do TSA exercises in April.
P.6     Do Pre-Secondary 1 HKAT supplementary exercises.

2.2    After school

1.    Remedial classes are held once a week during study period to help border-lined students (maximum 10 students in each group).
2.    Elite class will be held once a week after school to train students to take part in inter-school Mathematics competition.
3.    Teachers co-plan enquiry topics

2.3    Activities and competitions

a.     Mathematics games are set monthly to arouse students’ interest in Mathematics and to boost their critical thinking.
b.     Recitation of multiplication table and mental calculation competition after lunch.
c.     Mathematics Day – games booths and inner school Maths competition

2.4    Bonus Question

Set extra 1 or 2 challenging questions in Quizzes and Exams to strengthen students’ critical abilities and problem solving skills. No
marks will be deducted if they are wrong and bonus marks are given if they are correct.

4.   Targeted Points

4.1    To improve students’ calculating speed and train students to use mental calculation.
4.2    To apply mathematical knowledge in students’ daily lives.
4.3    To improve students’ problem solving skills.
4.4    To strengthen students’ basic knowledge and usage of measure.
4.5    To boost students’ sketching skills.
4.6    To promote students’ critical thinking and investigation spirit.
4.7    Mathematics Competition on reciting multiplication and addition and mental calculation will be held twice a week.
