At TKHC, Mathematics aims to prepare all students with the ability, perception and academic capabilities to address further developments in mathematics, as well as to equip those students with the mathematical skills required for their studies and lives in general.
The Foundation Years Programme in Mathematics is designed for lower secondary students to get experience and build up the basic skills and knowledge in mathematics that can promote their future development in different disciplines. In Grade 7 and 8, the content of mathematics learning focuses on the needs of students, engaging them and stimulating their desire to learn its fundamental principles. Students learn about real examples of how mathematics plays a part in their everyday lives. They see how mathematics is useful and relevant to them in their lives, and they are encouraged to apply this knowledge to their surroundings. Students use ICT tools to display different information, to explore and model situations, and to find solutions to various problems. These skills have numerous and significant applications in a wide range of fields.
Our students are equipped to meet the challenges of the 21st Century by cultivating their critical and creative thinking, mathematical inquiry and reasoning skills, and the ability to use mathematics to solve problems in their daily lives and surroundings.
