Worksheet 1 : Lets coordinate!

PART 1.1

A simple equation like y = f(x) can be expressed beautifully as a graph on the Cartesian plane. This
awesome representation was made possible by a French mathematician.
Write an anecdote on the contributions and achievements of this famous mathematician.

PART 1.2

Games can be powerful tools that significantly boost personal development, learning
achievement and pupils success if the games are specially designed
to develop specific skills or concepts.

Use simple materials to design a game based on coordinates.


Your design should include the following:
1. A suitable name for the game.
2. The mathematical concepts involved.
3. Rules of the game.

Worksheet 11 : Reflection

There are many more topics in the Additional Mathematics syllabus that involve the use of coordinates.
Coordinates are just amazingly useful in many branches of mathematics! In this project work, you have the
experience of using coordinates to solve just a few problems. But as John Dewey, the renowned educationist,
said:

We do not learn from experience. We learn from reflecting on experience.


So, reflect creatively on this awesome aspect of coordinate geometry. Poems, songs, doodle art .. are
just some suggestions of creativities for you to consider.
