Man, Yiu-Kwong; Poon, Kin-Keung – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2014
In this paper, we report a pilot study on engaging a group of undergraduate students to explore the limits of sin(x)/x and tan(x)/x as x approaches to 0, with the use of non-graphic scientific calculators. By comparing the results in the pretest and the post-test, we found that the students had improvements in the tested items, which involved the…

Poon, Kin-Keung; Leung, Chi-Keung – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2010
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 years). From…

Poon, Kin-Keung; Shiu, Wai-Chee – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2008
In this note, we will focus on several applications on the Dirichlet's box principle in Discrete Mathematics lesson and number theory lesson. In addition, the main result is an innovative game on a triangular board developed by the authors. The game has been used in teaching and learning mathematics in Discrete Mathematics and some high schools in…
