Learning outside classroom – Puzzling with puzzles
COURSE OBJECTIVES
Objectives
Objectives of the various courses are included in the syllabuses for secondary schools prepared by the Curriculum Development Council. Topics to be taught in different teaching groups are designed and reviewed from time to time to meet the needs of individual students.
To enable students to cope confidently with the mathematics needed in their future studies, workplace or daily life in a technological and informationrich society. This course aims at developing students’:
 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;
 ability to manipulate numbers, symbols and other mathematical objects;
 number sense, symbol sense, spatial sense and a sense of measurement as well as the capability in appreciating structures and patterns;
 positive attitude towards mathematics and the capability in appreciating the aesthetic nature and cultural aspect of mathematics.
YEARLY DEPARTMENTAL MAJOR CONCERNS:
 To enhance teaching effectiveness through sharing
 To cultivate students’ interest in mathematics and hence uplift their learning effectiveness

Mathematics Curriculum S4S6 Compulsory Part
Course Objectives
The Compulsory Part serves as a foundation for all students and at the same time provides flexibility to cater for the diverse needs of individual students. Its contents are categorised into Foundation Topics and Nonfoundation Topics. The Foundation Topics constitute a coherent set of essential concepts and knowledge while the Nonfoundation Topics cover a wider range of content.
The topics in the Compulsory Part emphasise the relevance of mathematics to various human activities. Students are expected to engage in different activities to foster their awareness of the worldwide use of mathematical terminology, notation and strategies to solve problems. Also, to enable students to recognise and appreciate the interconnection between the different parts of mathematics they have learnt at both the junior and senior secondary levels, a “Further Applications” learning unit is incorporated into the Compulsory Part.
This course aims to:
 further develop students’ mathematical knowledge, skills and concepts;
 provide students with mathematical tools for their personal development and future career pathways;
 provide a foundation for students who may further their studies in Mathematics or related areas;
 develop in students the generic skills, and in particular, the capability to use mathematics to solve problems, reason and communicate;
 develop in students interest in and positive attitudes towards mathematics learning;
 develop students’ competence and confidence in dealing with mathematics needed in life; and
 help students to fulfil their potential in mathematics.

Mathematics Curriculum S4 – S6 Extension Modules 1 and 2
Course Objectives
The Extended Part is designed for students who need more mathematical knowledge and skills for their future studies and careers, and for those whose interests and maturity have been developed to a level that enables them to benefit from further mathematical study in different areas. The Extended Part aims at extending students’ mathematics horizon beyond the Compulsory Part. Students have to handle more complicated problems in the Extended Part than in the Compulsory Part.
Module 1 (Calculus and Statistics) is intended to cater for those students who will be involved in disciplines or careers which demand a wider scope and deeper understanding of mathematics, and for those who would like to learn more mathematical applications at the senior secondary level.
It aims to:
 provide students with skills and concepts beyond the Compulsory Part;
 emphasise applications rather than mathematical rigour with a view to widening students’ perspectives on mathematics; and
 provide students with intuitive concepts of calculus and statistics, related basic skills and useful tools for their future studies and careers.
