Circles had been used in daily lives to help people in their living. It is the basis for the wheel. "circle" refers to the perimeter while the interior of the circle is called a disk. In everyday use. The common distance of the points of a circle from its center is called its radius. A circle is a simple shape of Euclidean geometry consisting of those points in a plane which is the same distance from a given point called the centre. Circles are simple closed curves which divide the plane into two regions. However.Introduction. makes much of modern civilization possible. which. In mathematics. The circumference of a circle is the perimeter of the circle (especially when referring to its length). the study of the circle has helped inspire the development of geometry and calculus. with related inventions such as gears. Additional Mathematics Project Work 2/2011 Page 4 . Circles are conic sections attained when a right circular cone is intersected with a plane perpendicular to the axis of the cone. There are a lot of things around us related to circles or parts of a circle. the term "circle" may be used interchangeably to refer to either the boundary of the figure (known as the perimeter) or to the whole figure including its interior. The circle has been known since before the beginning of recorded history. A circle is a special ellipse in which the two foci are coincident. an interior and an exterior. in strict technical usage.

regardless of a circle's size. C. has the value of 3.  Alternatively can be also defined as the ratio of a circle's area (A) to the area of a square whose side is equal to the radius. is The ratio is constant. Additional Mathematics Project Work 2/2011 Page 5 . defined as the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter.14159265.Definition. In Euclidean plane geometry. For example. preserving the ratio . if a circle has twice the diameter of another circle it will also have twice the circumference. Pi.

there has been much effort to determine more accurately and to understand its nature. Consequently.14159 in the usual decimal notation. this is the same value as the ratio of a circle's area to the square of its radius. which means that its value cannot be expressed exactly as a fractionm/n. which means that no finite sequence of algebraic operations on integers (powers. and engineering involve . fascination with the number has even carried over into non-mathematical culture. Archimedes' constant (not to be confused with an Archimedes number). the symbol is always pronounced like "pie" in English. The constant is named " " because " " is the first letter of the Greek words (periphery) and (perimeter). and popularized by Leonhard Euler in 1737. or perimeter.History. In Greek. first by William Jones in 1707. and this spelling is commonly used in typographical contexts when the Greek letter is not available. is one of the most important mathematical and physical constants: many formulae from mathematics. the name of this letter is pronounced /pi/. roots. The name of the Greek letter is pi. sums. The constant is occasionally also referred to as the circular constant. probably referring to its use in the formula to find the circumference. Throughout the history of mathematics. It is not normally capitalised ( ) even at the beginning of a sentence.) can be equal to its value. It is also a transcendental number. proving this was a late achievement in mathematical history and a significant result of 19th century German mathematics. its decimal representation never ends or repeats. is Unicode character U+03C0 ("Greek small letter pi"). was adopted for the number from the Greek word forperimeter " ". Pi or is a mathematical constant whose value is the ratio of any circle's circumference to its diameter in Euclidean space. of a circle. etc. often spelled outpi in text. or its usage could be problematic. is an irrational number. which is the conventional English pronunciation of the Greek letter. science. It is approximately equal to 3. The Greek letter . Additional Mathematics Project Work 2/2011 Page 6 . or Ludolph's number (from a German mathematician whose efforts to calculate more of its digits became famous). When referring to this constant. wherem andn are integers.

You are to plan for a cake that will serve between 200 and 250 people. You have 4 different sizes of pans of you can use. then stacking the baked cake sections on top of each other. Cakes are treasured not only because of their wonderful taste but also in the art of cake baking and cake decorating. Hari Raya. Constructing the structure of a cake These cakes are made by using different sizes of circular pans. Each layer can then be separated and cut individually. Additional Mathematics Project Work 2/2011 Page 7 . Find out how mathematics is used in cake baking and cake decorating and write about your findings. Each layer of cake will be cut into sectors that have a top area of exactly 50 cm You may have some left-over cake from a layer 2 Example of 50 cm2 top area of sector y One sector feeds one person. Find out how mathematics is used in cake baking and cake decorating and write about your findings. y y The wedding cake must feed between 200 and 250 people.Question Part I Cakes come in a variety of forms and flavours and are among favourite desserts served during special occasions such as birthday parties. weddings and etc. ( All pans have the same height ) r = 10 cm r = 15 cm r = 20 cm r = 25 cm y y y y Each layer of cake must remain a cylinder You can stack layers .

Add up the cost of your ingredients to find the cost of your cake. y Calculate the proportions of different ingredients. while a sheet cake on a tray needs the top and four sides frosted. Older children and teenagers can use more sophisticated math to solve baking dilemmas. such as counting ingredients and setting the oven timer. if your cake has to bake for 30 minutes and you set the timer at 3:40. the timer will go off at 4:10. by determining the fraction of the container used and multiplying that by the cost of the entire container y y y y y Additional Mathematics Project Work 2/2011 Page 8 . Determine what time it will be when the oven timer goes off. A round layer cake requires frosting on the top. Calculate the surface area of the part of the cake that needs frosting. use a 1/4 cup three times. For example. sugar and butter ratio of 4:4:1. Practicing math while baking not only improves your math skills. a frosting recipe that calls for 2 cups cream cheese. Complete the ingredients list by identifying the quantities needed for each ingredient in the cake. For example. such as how to make a cake recipe larger or smaller or how to determine what size slices you should cut. Many steps of baking a cake. Estimate the cost of partially used ingredients. in order to feed between 200 and 250 people. an 18 by 13 inch sheet cake designed to serve 25 people should be cut into slices that measure approximately 3 by 3 inches. 2 Work and calculations to determine the ingredients of the cake Baking a cake offers a tasty way to practice math skills. This requires you to work with fractions. on each layer and on the sides. By using the theory of arithmetic and geometric progressions in Chapter 1 Form 5. For example. 2 cups confectioners' sugar and 1/2 cup butter has a cream cheese. For example. For example. such as fractions and ratios. the concept can be used to y y y Decide on how many layers of each size of cake you will need for your cake. it helps you become a more flexible and resourceful baker. Show how you can cut the layers of the cake into equivalent sectors having a top area of 50 cm each. in a real-world context. Identifying ratios can also help you make recipes larger or smaller. such as flour.
