A warm welcome to the Renaissance College mathematics website where we hope you will find the information here both informative and useful when it comes to understanding our approach in delivering MYP and DP maths here at RC.
The department is made up of ten full time maths teachers who instruct across all year levels and both programmes in the seven specialist maths classrooms located in our hub on the 2nd floor of the secondary school building. Each spacious room is equipped with robust optical fiber-to-the-classroom connectivity and wireless technology, which all goes towards creating dynamic and interactive learning environments for our students. We are also lucky enough to have our own specialist member of the learning enhancement team (LET) dedicated to our subject area alongside educational assistants in our classes which is congruous with our belief in inclusion.
Please take the time to look around the site and feel free to get in touch if you have any further inquiries.
Mathematics serves as the gateway to a better understanding of our immediate surroundings and the greater world around us. As such, at RCHK we look to engage students in mathematics that is both abstract and real to them.
Our self-written curriculum fully addresses the four branches of mathematics prescribed by the MYP and looks to make connections between them all, where appropriate. The continuity between year levels allows for a natural progression of skills being taught.
Throughout their time in the programme, students are exposed to teaching and learning strategies which promote teacher-directed instruction and independent learning alongside each other. We encourage pupils to be open-minded in their approach to problem solving, clear in their presentation of solutions and reflective of their methods used. Technology is present in our classrooms and is used as a powerful educational tool when introducing , developing and investigating new topics and concepts.
We place an emphasis on heuristic techniques whilst embracing the transdisciplinary skills which combine to give every student the chance to access and develop their own individual mathematical skills.
Our aim is to engender a life-long love of mathematics, alongside enabling student success within the subject in preparation for a rewarding future.
