Does your portfolio report read like an article for a mathematical journal? Can your portfolio report be read without referring to the task questions? Does the introduction give a brief overview of the report and its purpose? Does the conclusion summarize the findings? Has unnecessary repetition been avoided? Are graphs, tables and diagrams sufficiently labelled? (including handwritten labels for calculator screen images)

Do all graphs, tables and diagrams include a title and/or caption? Are graphs, tables and diagrams in the main body of text?
(preferably no full-page graphs; and no appendix containing graphs) Has technology been used in a way that helps develop mathematical ideas? Has the application of technology been clearly explained and/or demonstrated? Has calculator/computer notation and terminology not been used? ( y = x2, noty = x ^ 2 ;≈ , not=for approx. values;π , not pi;x, not abs(x); etc) Has the form declaring it is your own work been signed and included with report?

for Type I Tasks – Mathematical Investigation:
■ Has the general statement been clearly stated?
■ Has the validity of the general statement been tested with further examples? ■ Have comments on scope and limitations of the general statement been included? (in main body of report and summarized in conclusion) ■ Is there a sufficient informal justification of the general statement? for Type II Tasks – Mathematical Modelling:

■ ■ ■
■ ■
Are the variables, parameters and constraints clearly defined? Is there sufficient analysis of how well the mathematical model fits the data? Has the model been applied to other situations?

Exercise 1
Trade and cash discounts; the gross method and the net method compared
( LO3
DEC Corporation, a manufacturer of furnaces, sold 200 units to a customer on April 6, 2013. The units have a list price of $800 each, but the customer was given a 20% trade discount. The terms of the sale were 1/10, n30.
Required:
1a. Prepare the journal entries to record the sale on April 6 (ignore cost of goods)...

...History of mathematics
A proof from Euclid's Elements, widely considered the most influential textbook of all time.[1]
The area of study known as the history of mathematics is primarily an investigation into the origin of discoveries in mathematics and, to a lesser extent, an investigation into the mathematical methods and notation of the past.
Before the modern age and the worldwide spread of knowledge, written examples of new mathematical...

...that the paper itself could be a solution to the problem mentioned. Moreover, it makes the thesis more realistic.
To sum up everything that was tackled, I could say that the thesis served to have an important purpose in the current state of Mathematics Education in the Philippines. It is very informative and feasible. Since it is a small study because it only involved 6 average students, we could propose more studies rooting from this which would have a bigger scope such as...

...HISTORY OF MATHEMATICS
The history of mathematics is nearly as old as humanity itself. Since antiquity, mathematics has been fundamental to advances in science, engineering, and philosophy. It has evolved from simple counting, measurement and calculation, and the systematic study of the shapes and motions of physical objects, through the application of abstraction, imagination and logic, to the broad, complex and often abstract discipline we know...

...for solar thermal amongst renewable energy resources.
For the study, the plant was simulated in the solar booster mode, which has proven to produce more rewarding and stable results than fuel saving mode.
The following components, which are standard to power plants with steam turbines, were integrated into a whole-plant model:
Boiler – with a furnace, water walls, drums, evaporative bank, superheater, reheater, economisers and air heaters
Steam turbine – extraction...
