Introduction – An interactive Maths application which emphasises on thinking process
The content in Mathspace matches with the curriculum in Hong Kong, it puts much emphasis on learners’ thinking process in solving questions. To cater for learning diversity, Mathspace offers Adaptive mode task types, hints and timely feedback. Learners can draw mathematics symbols and numbers with their fingers on mobile devices which makes learning Maths a fun and engaging experience.
Features in Learning and Teaching
User interface – ‘Planner’ is where teachers manage and assign learning and teaching tasks. Teachers can overview performance and administrate their classes.
Assessment mode – Teachers can choose among the three types of tasks in Mathspace.
‘Adaptive Task’ – The system will feed questions to a learner according to the result of each question. Capable students will receive a harder question while an easy question will be fed to students who need more assistance.
‘Custom Task’ – Questions from various topics and levels can be chosen and combined which could then be assigned as homework or assessment.
‘Fast-track Task’ – It gives teachers an idea of how much a class knows about a topic before and after teaching.
Handwriting recognition – Mathspace recognises mathematics symbols and numbers drawn on mobile devices. It helps students focus on solving Maths questions.
Assistance – When a learner is stuck, he/she can receive hints and videos. Each step will be recorded and evaluated. Learners can be prompted whenever they need help. It encourages learners to try to explore on different topics.
Learning reports – All the steps made in solving a question will be recorded. Teachers can identify strengths and weaknesses of each learner and fine-tune their teaching plans or strategies.
Teaching materials – Rich resources are available in ‘eBook’ which help teachers in lesson preparation and students in knowing more about certain topics.

Teaching Idea: Encouraging Self-directed Learning
In order to encourage students’ self-directed learning, teachers often worry about how to provide self-learning materials to students. The following recommendations suggest ways that teachercould use Mathwspace to encourage self-direced learning among students.
Teaching Idea: Tips for Activities Planning
The purposes of pre-lesson, during-lesson and post-lesson activities vary, and there are usually learning diversities among students. That is why teachers need well-designed activities to address these needs in a timely and appropriate manner. The following recommendations encourage teachers to use the three practice modes on Mathspace flexibly, with thoughtful settings to meet the multi-faceted needs of learning and teaching.
Teaching Idea: Fast-track Task for Pre- and Post-lesson Learning
Teachers can make use of Adaptive tasks on Mathspace to help students understand their strengths and weaknesses either before or after learning a new topic, and to better plan their learning or revision schedule.
Teaching Idea: Adaptive Task for Personalised Learning
Every student has a unique way of learning. Teachers can make use of Adaptive tasks on Mathspace to help students take the lead of personalised learning, and to understand a Mathematics concept at their own pace until they can master it.
Teaching Idea: Custom Task
Custom Task on Mathspace is a powerful tool for students to clear basic Mathematics concepts and get ready for challenges ahead. In this teaching idea, steps and tips for creating Custom Task will be introduced. Recommended topics for senior primary and secondary levels are also included.
