Guidelines for the Implementation of Additional Mathematics Project Work 2012
( Student’s Edition )

1.         Every student taking Additional Mathematics is required to carry out a project work in Form 5.
2.         The aims of carrying out project work are:
            i.          to apply and adapt a variety of problem- solving strategies to solve problems;
            ii.         to improve thinking skills;
iii.                to promote effective mathematical communication;
iv.                to develop mathematical knowledge through problem solving in a way that increases students’ interest and confidence;
v.                  to use the language of mathematics to express mathematical ideas precisely;
vi.                to provide learning environment that stimulates and enhances effective learning;
vii.              to develop positive attitude towards mathematics.
3.                  Project work can be done in groups or individually but each student is expected to submit an individually written report which includes the following:
·         Report Presentation
-                      General Aspect
-                      Introduction
·         Task Specification
-                      Specify the task
-                      Making and proving conjectures
·         Problem Solving
-                      Procedure
-                      Communication
-                      Reasoning
·         Conclusion/Generalization
4.                  Students are given three weeks to carry out the project. Written report must be submitted by the end of the third week.
