Mathematics in Hong Kong / China: Improving on being first in PISA


Students in Hong Kong and China consistently perform at the highest level in mathematics as indicated by PISA/TIMMS assessments. However, Hong Kong is not complacent. The world is changing and so is Hong Kong education. It is revamping its curriculum and assessment approaches so that all students have a strong mathematics foundation to support their learning. While we can learn from other cultures and systems, the importance of context must not be underestimated.
