A Preliminary Study on the Difficulties of the Junior Secondary Students in Learning Algebra
The purpose of the study reported herein was to identify the common mistakes made by junior secondary students in Hong Kong when learning algebra and to compare teachers’ perceptions of students’ ability with the results of an algebra test. An algebra test was developed and administered to a sample of students (aged between 13 and 14). From the responses of the participating students (N = 815), it was found that students in schools with a higher level of academic achievement had better algebra . . .

Further Development of Complete Teaching and Learning Materials for Mathematics Modules
The Department of Mathematics has noted that students have frequently expressed their concern about the difficulty of learning mathematics, and about the shortage of appropriate learning materials. These concerns have validity because of the differences in focus, depth and orientation between the standard university mathematics curriculum and a curriculum that would be appropriate for the education of primary/junior secondary mathematics teachers. Because of these differences, and the much sma . . .
