GENERAL GUIDE - Paper 1
Paper 1 SPM Mathematics covers selected topics from Form 1 to 3, all topics in Form 4 and 5, and requires BASIC, INTERMEDIATE and HIGHER skills. Topics in this paper covers the NUMBERS, SHAPES & SPACE and ALGEBRAIC themes. Skills connected to the NUMBERS, SHAPES & SPACE and ALGEBRAIC themes sometimes complement each other; without any one of the skill, others CAN’T BE acquired. Questions on SHAPES require a lot of ALGEBRAIC and NUMBER skills whilst questions on ALGEBRA require skills on NUMBERS or vice versa. From the above explaination, it is clear that skills on NUMBERS should be built first whilst skills on ALGEBRA are an important tool to solve many problems. Scope of questions covers topics that have been taught from Form 1 to 5 (please refer to topics analysis in Part C to get a clear picture of topics posted)

ANSWERING GUIDE – Paper 1

1. Paper 1 usually begins with simple and easy questions. 2. If any can’t be answered, move to other questions and don’t waste time an any one question. 3. For questions that involve Squares, Square Roots or other table readings, usually examples on how to use the table are shown. 4. Table below shows instructions word in questions and what should be done.

QUESTION INSTRUCTION
CALCULATE / EVALUATE / FIND EXPRESS WRITE / STATE ROUND SIMPLIFY FACTORISE SOLVE

WHAT SHOULD BE DONE
You have to do calculation using formulae, guide, theorem or law. You have to give answer in the form requested. Write down answer without showing any working method. You have to give answer to the nearest value. You have to write certain expression in the simplest form You have to write again expression in the form of product of factors. Seeking the value of variable in a certain equation.

QUESTION EXAMPLE
Calculate the probability of getting a male student. Express your answer in standard form. State the angle for this rotation. Round 0.0218 to two significant figure. Simplify m 2 – (k – m) 2 k Factorise completely 4h2k – hk. Solve the equation f + 5 = 8

5. It is very important for candidates to study past years questions and try to answer them according to the time and rules set. This will give us a clear picture of the form of question that will be given, skills that must be grasp and topics that must be given priority. 6. Don’t be too dependent on a certain method or skill to solve problems. Try to variate your technique and skill. 7. THE MORE EXERCISE, THE BETTER METHOD OF SOLVING WE USE AND THE FASTER WE SOLVE EXAMINATION QUESTIONS THAT HAVE THE SAME FORMAT EACH YEAR .

2. QUESTIONS THAT CAN BE ANSWERED USING OTHER QUESTION BEFORE OR AFTER IT AS A GUIDE Example 2 below can be answered using Example 3 as a guide.

Try whether 234 is equal to 3 . If not, repeat with 624 8 other choices. (If possible make a RANDOM choice because we might succeed at first try)

ANSWERING GUIDE AND MARKING SCHEME

In general, candidate will be awarded METHOD MARKS (for working method needed), ANSWER MARKS (for the precise answer needed), INDEPENDENT MARKS (for answers that working methods are not needed), TRANSFER MARKS (for transfering points into graph paper with precision), GRAPH MARKS ( for smooth and flawless graph) QUALITY MARKS (for a good drawings of Plans and Elevation ) and others. Following are general guides that candidates have to practice in some questions in paper 2.

Change to its standard form ax2 + bx + c = 0 Factorise expression on the Left Hand Side. Use the fact that “If ab = 0, then a = 0 or b = 0”

Example 1 : Solve the equation (f – 1)(f + 3) = 5

2. SIMULTANEOUS LINEAR EQUATIONS Eliminate fractions first (if there is any) by multiplying the equation with the denominator. solve using the “subtitution” or “variable elimination” technique. recheck whether the answer satisfy the equation given.
