OBJECTIVES

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 enhanceseffective learning.
