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 written report. 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 mathematics 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. . Failure to submit the written report will result in us not receiving certificate.  Train ourselves not only to be independent learners but also to collaborate. 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  Realize the importance and the beauty of mathematics We are expected to submit the project work within three weeks from the first day the task is being administered to us.

Lastly. . thank you to Allah for giving the will to do my additional mathematics project. Mr. Hjh Naimah bt Hj Omar for giving the permission to do my Additional Mathematics Project Work. I also like to thank my Additional Matematics teacher. I would like to thank my parents for their support and encouragement. Secondly. I would like to thank the principle of Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Tambun. Show Chet for the guide and giving useful and important information for me to complete this project work. Besides that.Appreciation Alhamdullilah. Pn. a special thanks to all my friends for their help and cooperation in searching for information and completing this project work.

a) Collect pictures. newspaper cuttings or photos on items that you have chosen items . You are required to carry out a survey on four different items based on the following categories i. The survey should be done in three different shops. detergent and stationery. food.e.Part 1 The prices of goods sold in shops vary from one shop to another. Shoppers tend to buy goods which are not only reasonably priced but also give value for their money.

Since items maybe differently packed. .b) Record the items and their prices systematically as in Table 1. be sure to use consistent measurements for each item selected so that comparison can be done easily accurately.

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

d) Based on the graphical representation that you have constructed in part 1(c). discuss and draw conclusions. Comments on your findings. . interpret.

Discuss how you obtained your answers. Answer: Ingredients Self-raising flour Sugar Butter Eggs(Grade A) Weightage(W) 250/1000= 200/1000= 250/1000= 300/1000= .Question ii) Calculate the composite index for making a butter cake in the year 2010 based on the year 2009.

.Question iii) In the year 2009.00 each. Suggest a suitable selling price for the butter cake in the year 2010. the butter cake was sold at RM15. Give reasons for your answer.

12m Volume of the room= . Hence . It is suitable for a room size 1000ft which is around 27m of volume.Question (c)(i) Find out from reliable sources how to determine suitable capacity of air conditioner to be installed based on the volume/size of a room. determine the number of air conditioners with the appropriate capacity required for your library.17m Length=20. Answer: By using a measuring tape. air conditioner is rated according to horse power (1HP) . Question (ii) Work in groups to estimate the volume of your school library.6m Width=9. Explain the volume of your answer. which is approximately 700W to 1000W of electrical power. Answer: For common usage. the dimension for the library is: Height=3.

Question (iii) If your class intends to sponsor one air conditioner for the school library. how many butter cake must your class sell in order to buy the air conditioner? Answer: .1 unit of air conditioner is 27m That means our school library needs 25 unit of air conditioner.

prizes and decorations remains the same. transportation and tents has increased by 15%.00 345.00 600. .00 920.00 500.00 600.Part 3 As a committee member for the carnival. Answer.00 300.00 800. you are required to prepare an estiated budget to organize this year’s carnival.00 200. The price of food. Comment on your answer. whereas the cost of miscellaneous items has increased by 30%.00 520.00 400.00 Table 3 Amount in 2010(RM) 1380.00 500. The committee has to take into the consideration the increase in expenditure from the previous year due to inflation.00 Question b) Calculate the composite index for the estimated budget of the carnival in the year 2010 based on the year 2009. Question a) Complete Table 3 based on the information given above.00 200. The cost of games. Expenditure Food Games Transportation Decorations Prizes Tents Miscellaneous Amount in 2009(RM) 1200.

This is because some price in the year 2009 increased in the year 2010.625%. Determine the composite index of the budget for the year 2011 based on the year 2009. Composite index for the year 2009 to the year 2010 =111.625 . Solution.The total price for the year 2010 increase by 11. Question. c) The change in the composite index for the estimate budget for the carnival from the year 2009 to the year 2010 is the same as the change from the year 2010 to the year 2011.

day and night to finish this additional Mathematics Project. here is what I got to say: I  Additional Mathematics!! Doing this project makes me realize how important Additional Mathematics is. completing this project makes me realize how fun it is and llikeable is Additional Mathematics .Reflection After spending countless hours.Also.

. Especially in conducting an air-pollution survey. I saw that the usage of index number is important in daily life. Without it. drawing graps and some problems solving. It is not just widely used in markets but also in interpreting the condition of the surrounding like the air or the water.Conclusion After doing research. So. index number is a daily life necessecities. the stock market can’t be interpret and many more. answering questions. surveys can’t be conducted. we should be thankful of the people who contribute in the idea of index number. In conclusion.
