摘要

在近半世紀香港小學數學課程發展的漫漫長路中,我們看到一條現代化、本土化、普及化、規範化與專業化的路。雖然本文未能詳細描述我們過去數年研究香港戰後小學數學課程發展所得的內容及啟示,但我們仍嘗試深入探討幾個重要的課程實施原則:細水長流的課程改革過程;現代化、本土化必須因應時勢;規範化及普及化的小心配合;改革者的良性互動和專業成長。

關鍵詞:小學數學;課程發展;課程實施;歷史研究

Abstract

In the long journey of primary mathematics curriculum development in Hong Kong, modernization, localization, popularization, normalization and professionalization have been the key concerns in the past five decades. Even though we cannot describe in detail the research findings of our study on post-War primary mathematics curriculum development of the last few years, we have tried to examine some important curriculum implementation principles. Curriculum reform is a long-term process and temporal and contextual factors should be considered for modernization and localization. Reforms should also carefully match the pace for normalization and popularization and reform agents should always aim to interact positively and develop professionally.
