1. To address the problem of traffic in a big city, several straight roads are being
constructed. It was noted that two roads will have at most one junction, three roads will
have at most three junctions, and so on.
a. Complete the table below. Identify the pattern on the maximum number of
junctions for each given number of straight roads.
No. of roads 2 3 4 5 6
No. of intersections
1 3 6 10 15
(at most)

b. At most how many junctions are expected to be constructed if there will be

seven roads in the city? Answer: 21
2. Why are numbers important in our life? Explain your answer.
 Numbers are very essential to us because it is everywhere. In my case, I wake
up using an alarm and if I haven’t known those numbers stated in the clock, I
could be late in class. If I don’t know how to read the signage on the elevator
going up or down the building, I may end up on a wrong floor of the building. If I
don’t know how to read my coins and bills, I might pay and give the driver or
seller more money than usual. These are just some reasons why I think numbers
are important, specially to me yet its importance may just vary depending on the
life a person is living.
3. Other than those mentioned in the section, enumerate five (5) situations where you
have to use numbers.
a. Setting the parameters in a manual camera (e.g ISO, brightness, shutter
b. Checking the right dosage of medicines
c. Inputting another channel on a television
d. Changing the heat level on a flat iron
e. Dialing a number for a phone call
4. Other than those mentioned in the section, describe three other patterns of shapes
that you see in nature. Describe briefly the “mathematics” behind such patterns.
a. Starfishes exhibit five-fold symmetry
b. The leaves of ferns show fractals
c. Sand dunes in Paoay, Ilocos Norte where barchans can be observed
5. Identify and describe at least one pattern that you observe in your locality or within
your nearby environment
 In Ilocos Norte, there is what we call “Kalbaryo.” It is a series of zigzag roads on
a mountain side, overlooking the ocean. The pattern that I observed in this place
is meanders.
