OBJECTIVE
We students taking Additional Mathematics are required to carry out a project work while we are in Form 5.This year the Curriculum Development Division, Ministry of Education has prepared four tasks for us. We are to choose and complete only ONE task based on our area of interest. This project can be done in groups or individually, and I gladly choose to do this individually. Upon completion of the Additional Mathematics Project Work, we are to gain valuable experiences and able to: • Apply and adapt a variety of problem solving strategies to solve routine and non-routine problems.

Experience classroom environments which are challenging, interesting and meaningful and hence improve their thinking skills. Experience classroom environments where knowledge and skills are applied in meaningful ways in solving real-life problems. Experience classroom environments where expressing ones mathematical thinking, reasoning and communication are highly encouraged and expected. Experience classroom environments that stimulates and enhances effective learning. Acquire effective mathematical communication through oral and writing, and to use the language of mathematics to express mathematical ideas correctly and precisely. Enhance acquisition of mathematical knowledge and skills through problem-solving in ways that increase interest and confidence .

• •

Prepare ourselves for the demand of our future undertakings and in workplace . Realise that mathematics is an important and powerful tool in solving real-life problems and hence develop positive attitude towards mathematics . Train ourselves not only to be independent learners but also to collaborate, to cooperate, and to share knowledge in an engaging and healthy environment. Use technology especially the ICT appropriately and effectively . Train ourselves to appreciate the intrinsic values of mathematics and to become more creative and innovative.

Secondly, I would like to thank the principle of Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Dato’ Penggawa Barat , Tn Hj Hashim bin Mohd Dom for giving me the permission to do my this Additional Mathematics Project Work. Not forgotten my parents for providing everything, m such as money, to buy anything that are related to this project work and their advices. They also supported and encouraged me to complete this task so that I will not procrastinate in doing it.. Lastly, a special thanks to all my friends for their help and cooperation in searching for information and completing this project work.

c)

Create at least two suitable graphical representations (the use of ICT is encouraged) to compare and contrast the price of the items chosen.

Answer : 1) i)FOOD ii)DETERGENT

iii)STATIONARY :

2) i) Food:

ii)DETERGENT:

iii)STATIONARY:

(d) Based on the graphical representation that you have constructed in Part 1(c), interpret,discuss and draw conclusions.Comments on your findings. Answer: Based on the graphical representation that I have constructed in Part 1(c), it is shown that there are large and small differences among the pries of items in each category between the shops. In the food category,

the smallest price difference are of those sugar, while the highest is the price of eggs. Besides food, detergent also shows a large price difference between its items. Among them is the price of liquid dishwasher and clothes detergent. On the other hand, stationery items doesn’t have any obvious price difference. The graph also show that most of the items that are high priced comes from Maslee, while the lowest price items come from the Giant. The graph 1(d) will show the conclusion of the difference among the shops based upon the shops grand total.
