Curriculum Features

Curriculum Planning

The focus is put on the curriculum sequence, connection between modules and transition to more advanced level.

Teaching materials are adjusted based on students’ ability. Enriched exercises are provided to high functioning students.

The senior secondary program emphasizes real life application and extended application of mathematics. For instance, diversified scenarios are used to facilitate the generalization of knowledge and skills learnt from mathematics. Information technology and equipment are employed to reduce drilling in arithmetic skills.

Diversified Teaching Strategy

Mathematical teaching method: skeleton of teaching

Self-regulated learning

Fused with elements of information technology: Information technology is applied to support exploration learning and problem-solving. For instance, drilling of arithmetic skills is reduced by using calculators

Project-based learning

Holistic performance-based activities

Diversified Assessment

Holistic performance-based assessment

Senior Secondary Learning Progress Framework

“I collected 5 bottles,” said Kit.

“I categorize the coins before counting to speed up the calculation,” said Dik.

“I found out the weight of an object by using electronic scale,” said Sam.

Students made sandwiches using ingredients of different shapes.

“Through performance-based activities, I know that the volume of different containers of the same size are the same,” said Lam.

“I can distinguish light and heavy objects by weighing them on my hands,” said Ming.

“We assess each other using the collaborative learning manual,” said Fung.

“We try to pay and be the cashier in Morninghope Convenience Store,” said Long and Ching.

The supermarket close to our school is one of the common venues for the holistic learning activities.

“In self-learning time, I draw the correct number of circles based on the number card Lok drew,” said Ching.
