Sunway University Press recently launched two books written by Sunway College A-Level lecturers. The two books, one on Mathematics: Revision Guide for Pure Mathematics 3 and the other on Economics: Model Essays were authored by master teacher Yong Yau, Principal Lecturer and Head of the A Level Mathematics/Further Mathematics department and Wong Wai Leong, Senior Lecturer of the A-Level programme respectively.
Yong who has more than 45 years of experience teaching Mathematics, hopes his book will assist in preparing students for the Cambridge International Pure Mathematics 3 examination, which of all the components, is the most difficult. Under his tutelage, students from the A-Level programme at Sunway College have done very well in the Cambridge examinations, many having achieved Top in Malaysia and Top in the World awards for Mathematics. Assisted by colleague Lee Lip Seong, Senior Lecturer and former colleague Amy Khoo, Yong has included in the contents of the book, theory and short cuts methods.
Wong’s book aims to provide students with a better understanding of the Economics subject. He has 25 years of teaching experience and his students too have won Cambridge Top in the World and Top in Malaysia awards in A-Level Economics. With the help of his colleagues, Ngew Shook Ying, Lecturer and Nedumaran Munusamy, Head of the A-Levels Economics Department, Wong has inserted many current affairs and human concerns into the book of essays such as issues on poverty, income inequality, climate change, human dignity, and how good economic policies can make significant difference in the lives of many people.
In addition to helping students in acquiring better essay writing skills, he also hopes the book can motivate students to using the knowledge gained to serve and contribute towards a better society.
Both books, the result of many months of hard work by the authors and Sunway University Press, are targeted for students sitting for the Cambridge International AS and A-Level examinations.
