JABATAN PENDIDIKAN NEGERI SELANGOR Project Work for Additional Mathematics2012PART 1
Polygons are evident in all architecture. They provide variation and charm in buildings.When applied to manufactured articles such as printed fabrics, wallpapers, and tileflooring, polygons enhance the beauty of the structure itself.(
a
)Collect six such pictures. You may use a camera to take the pictures or getthem from magazines, newspapers, internet or any other resources.(
b
)Give the definition of polygon and write a brief history of it.(
c
)There are various methods of finding the area of a triangle.State four different methods.
PART 2
A farmer wishes to build a herb garden on a piece of land. Diagram 1 shows the shapeof that garden, where one of its sides is 100 m in length.The garden has to be fencedwith a 300 m fence.The cost of fencing the garden is RM 20 per metre.(
The diagram below is not drawn to scale
)(
a
)Calculate the cost needed to fence the herb garden.(

(
c
)Based on your findings in (
b
), state the dimension of the herb garden so that theenclosed area is maximum.(
)(
i
)Only certain values o
p
and of
q
are applicable in this case. State the range of values of
p
and of
q
.(
ii
)By comparing the lengths of
p
,
q
and the given side, determine the relation between them.(
iii
) Make generalisation about the lengths of sides of a triangle. State the name of the relevant theorem.
PART 3
If the length of the fence remains the same, explore at least 5 various other shapes of thegarden that can be constructed so that the enclosed area is maximum.Round off your answers correct to two decimal places.Draw a conclusion from your exploration.
FURTHER EXPLORATION
(
a
)The demand of herbs in the market has been increasing nowadays. Suggestthree types of local herbs with their scientific names that the farmer can plant inthe herb garden to meet the demand. Collect pictures and information of theseherbs.(
b
)These herbs will be processed for marketing by a company. The design of the packaging plays an important role in attracting customers. The company wishesto design an innovative and creative logo for the packaging. You are given thetask of designing a logo to promote the product. Draw the logo on a piece of A4 paper. You must include at least one polygon shape in the logo.
