What is going on in mathematics

  • Maths

The subject of Mathematics is fascinating. Almost all our students love this subject and are very good at it. We plan our lessons with the international students in mind. We understand their strengths and weaknesses. All examples and exercises take an international viewpoint, giving students an opportunity to learn Mathematics with a global perspective. Our MYP curriculum places a strong emphasis on the process taken to work out a solution or various solutions to a particular problem particularly real-life problems.  

We are using MYP concept-based approach in our teaching and learning. The middle school Mathematics courses not only concentrate on mathematics skills but also the application of these in various problem-solving situations. We strive to explore new ways of training talent, create a good atmosphere for teaching and learning, and make greater contributions to the international community. Our aim is to bring high-interest real-world problems in our classrooms and apply mathematics concepts to solve those problems. This practice creates motivation and builds high level of confidence among our students who at later will stage become true MYP learners. 

At this moment, Year 7 has begun to investigate relationships between shapes whereas Year 8 is investigating patterns in polygons. Year 9 is learning “How Do Networks work?”

For the last few months Year 10s were busy figuring out polynomials and what they are used for. We kicked off this unit by diving into factorization and solving quadratic equations and soon we will be progressing to matrices. Although mathematics – especially algebra – isn’t famous for being easy, our year 10s did great job applying what they’ve learned and solve problems taken from everyday life. At the moment we are busy investigating and dissecting the archenemy of every math student; quadratic functions. Although some students find maths challenging at times, thanks to support from their peers and staff they tend to find, unveiling the mysteries of numbers, a very satisfying experience.
