Link to my Viva Voce on youtube.Pause the video at the last few seconds of the video to see my working on question (b) on Scenario 1.(I dont know why I cant import pictures of my working to the video, so I had to video to working.) Reflections(Submit to Mrs Sin on Hardcopy During Maths remedial on Sept Holidays(Tuesday)
After scrutinizing the information provided
to you on Google Site, please adhere to the submission guidelines as
closely as possible. (i.e. post a link on blog/ embed the video on blog)
INCLUDING the REFLECTION and script.
However, I will permit you to pass me your video file
on a thumb drive only for tomorrow but please come by the staff room
during recess so we do not take up curriculum time.
will only be available in Mr Johari's room in the afternoon after 2.45pm
as I have to invigilate some students who missed their level test. I
will wait for you until 3pm.
Prior to the activity, study the slides on matrices. In groups of 4 or 5, research on the application of matrices in the real world and put up at least one relevant, good quality resource regarding how matrices are used. Post (under comments) the link/ file for the resource and do a short summary (5 lines) on the application on the class blog. Be sure to acknowledge the source.
View the Milky Way at 10 million light years from the Earth. Then move through space towards the Earth in successive orders of magnitude until you reach a tall oak tree just outside the buildings of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, Florida. After that, begin to move from the actual size of a leaf into a microscopic world that reveals leaf cell walls, the cell nucleus, chromatin, DNA and finally, into the subatomic universe of electrons and protons.
- Trailing zeros or the final zero in a whole number or a decimal place is considered a significant figure. e.g: 0.0420, 0.4300, 430(numbers in red are significant figures)
Zeros in some cases can be considered as not a significant figure.e.g: express 34235 as 1 significant figure. The answer will be 30000. Reason behind why we round down is because anything below 5 round it down while any number 5 and above we would round up. (See more in the decimal place section.)
Rules of Decimal place
- If a number is above 5 then we round up the number if the number is 4 an below we round down. e.g: express 110 to the nearest hundreds and since the 1 at the tens position is below 5 we round it down.
·Identify a right-angled
triangle and its hypotenuse.
·Define the Pythagoras’
theorem and understand its symbols.
·Find the unknown side of a
right-angled triangle when the other two sides are given.
·Solve problems involving right-angled triangles with Pythagoras’
·Determining whether a triangle is right-angled given the lengths of 3 sides.
Who is Pythagoras?
Pythagoras (569-500 B.C.E.) was born on the island of Samos in Greece, and did much traveling through Egypt, learning, among other things, mathematics. Not much more is known of his early years. Pythagoras gained his famous status by founding a group, the Brotherhood of Pythagoreans, which was devoted to the study of mathematics. The group was almost cult-like in that it had symbols, rituals and prayers. In addition, Pythagoras believed that "Number rules the universe,"and the Pythagoreans gave numerical values to many objects and ideas. These numerical values, in turn, were endowed with mystical and spiritual qualities.
What's Pythagoras Theorem?
Pythagoras' theorem states that in any right angled triangle, the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides.
First and foremost, I thank you all for being wonderful students. When I was away I came to realise how challenging it must have been to be a student in Singapore and my conference with my colleagues (educators and technologists from all over the world) testi
fy that you are certainly capable of achieving great things (results, character et all). They marvel at your works and would like to have the opportunity to meet you eventually.
As we kick start to e-learning week, be clear of the objectives (refer to e-learning portal) and what it hopes to achieve. Below is just brief info to guide you.
Clear rules: simple, relevant, easy to understand (from content to examples) and engaging (teacher teaching, use of ICT or Maths blog - choice is yours)
The worksheet style must be similar to the one I used in class. Content must contain the introduction, information, examples and some questions (with your own solutions)
for sample worksheet: Please refer to googlesite
Grouping and Task
The style of working is up to the respective team.
You may work independently and then consolidate or meet and discuss or work on-line at the designated time.
Remember that learning should take place anywhere and anytime. The key is to work smart. Note that failure to plan is planning for failure.
To support your learning you may refer to any of these sites.
