We students taking Additional Mathematics are required tocarry out a project work while we are in Form 5. This year theCurriculum Development Division, Ministry of Education hasprepared four tasks for us. We are to choose and complete only onetask based on our area of interest. This project can be done in groupsor individually, but each of us is expected to submit an individuallywritten report. Upon completion of the Additional MathematicsProject Work, we are to gain valuable experiences and able to:
Apply and adapt a variety of problem solving strategies to solveroutine and non-routine problems;
Experience classroom environments which are challenging,interesting and meaningful and hence improve their thinkingskills.
Experience classroom environments where knowledge and skillsare applied in meaningful ways in solving real-life problems
Experience classroom environments where expressing onesmathematical thinking, reasoning and communication are highlyencouraged and expected
Experience classroom environments that stimulate and enhanceeffective learning.
Acquire effective mathematical communication through oral andwriting, and to use the language of mathematics to expressmathematical ideas correctly and precisely
Enhance acquisition of mathematical knowledge and skillsthrough problem-solving in ways that increase interest andconfidence
Prepare ourselves for the demand of our future undertakings andin workplace
Realise that mathematics is an important and powerful tool insolving real-life problems and hence develop positive attitudetowards mathematics.
Train ourselves not only to be independent learners but also tocollaborate, to cooperate, and to share knowledge in an engagingand healthy environment
Use technology especially the ICT appropriately and effectively
