### LEAP : Mathematics Applied Learning

SST LEAP 2010 : Mathematics

1. Identify at least one key learning points from the workshop.

2. Identify the character traits and dispositions you think will be critical in the studies of Mathematics.

3. Through the Mathematics Trail identify at least 1 key areas in Mathematics that could be applied in the real world.

1. To solve some problems, you have to sometimes think in a different way with to get the desired result and you have to keep trying to succeed and overcome a problem.

Puzzles can be used to show different concepts in Mathematics and they can teach you how to apply textbook theories i real life.

To solve a problem, you must think differently and use different ways of solving a problem, if one way does not work, then we can solve it in a different way. This will help when you have limitations that prevent you from executing one way of solving the problem.

2. 1.Maths can be found in almost every subject.
2.Commitment and Perseverance
3.The Mathematics of Nature

3. 1. How to check if one's NRIC umber is legal or illegal.
2. Determination and Perseverance.
3. At the mathematical trail, there is a question that ask us to check if the NRIC number is illegal or legal. I think that is one thing that could be applied in the real world as sometimes, when people make fake passport, the NRIC number could be illegal.

Lim Mei Zhi Michelle,

4. 1.Maths are everywhere just that some does not need to use pen and paper.

2.Do not give up,there will always be a method to solve the problem.

3.Checking your NRIC,it will let us know whether the person is a illegal NRIC.

5. 1.Think out of the box
2.Perseverance, Self-disciplined, Creativity
3.Clinometer

7. 1.I have learnt that we can use many different ways to solve a problem.

2. We need to have self discipline and determination.

3.clinometer

Daniel Pei

8. 1. Be Creative and see thing using different perspectives

2. Perseverance, Integrity and Self-Discipline.

3. The Clinometer

9. 1. Identify at least one key learning points from the workshop.
I learnt to work out problem sums which are hard to solve.

2. Identify the character traits and dispositions you think will be critical in the studies of Mathematics.
Perseverance, commitment, courage, collaborating skills, confidence, critical thinking and intellectual curiosity.

3. Through the Mathematics Trail identify at least 1 key areas in Mathematics that could be applied in the real world.
The clinometer could be used to measure heights of buildings, slope, hills and mountains in real life.

Yeo Jun Peng

10. 1). You must think out of the box.

2) Perseverance, Creativity, Critical Thinking

3) The clinometer can be used to measure the height of the building.

11. 1. Identify at least one key learning points from the workshop.
-I learnt that we should not rush into something immediately but think first.

2. Identify the character traits and dispositions you think will be critical in the studies of Mathematics.
-Creativity, Perseverance, Critical Thinking and Collaborative skills

3. Through the Mathematics Trail identify at least 1 key areas in Mathematics that could be applied in the real world.
-The part where we had to use the clinometer to measure the height. This can help us in the future if we work as any occupation involving heights of buildings.

12. 1. We can see wether the IC is fake or real and we learn how to act fast, think fast, move fast and answer fast .

2. We must learn how to not be frustrated when we can't solve the question.

3. The IC test. We can see wether an IC no. even exist a not?

13. 1.Identify at least one key learning points from the workshop.
- I learned that estimation is a good way to solve a complicating questions. (i.e. the 1,000,000 saga seeds question)

2.Identify the character traits and dispositions you think will be critical in the studies of Mathematics.
The character traits are:
- determination
- self-desciplined
- excellence

3.Through the Mathematics Trail identify at least 1 key areas in Mathematics that could be applied in the real world.
- Estimation of numbers
- Making a clinometer

Kang Yan

14. 1. Maths applies in many different ways. It applies in almost everything.

2. Perseverance, Determination and Self - Discipline.

3. The Clinometer and the 'check your NRIC' exhibit at the Science Center.

15. 1. I learned that magic actually use mathematics to help them perform.

2.I feel that character traits and dispositions I think will be critical in the studies of Mathematics will be Curiosity. Curiosity will help improve our imagination, the perseverance to understand and know more.

3.I feel that the golden ratio can help surgeon to perfect the body such as people who wants to perfect their face.

16. 1. We learnt how to find out if the IC is fake or real.
2. We used teamwork and perseverance to
3. We can calculate the area of large just by knowing its height and circumference or we can use the clinometer to measure the height of things with the distance you are from the object and a calculator with tangem

17. Question 1:
How some of the magic tricks are done by using mathematics.
How did they find out the area of the different shapes

Question 2:
-Perseverance
-Determination/confidence
-Intellectual Curiosity
-Commitment

Question 3:
Finding the height of a building using mathematics

ONG BING JUE

18. 1. Even in puzzles, Maths are put into action. I remembered one puzzle. It is about putting Tessellations into action. The puzzle name is called Dissections 1. Making a square fro many pieces.
2. We need to ask questions to clarify our own doubts. For example, how does π come about. It is by dividing the circumference by the diameter of any circle.
3. The clinometer is able to identify the height of a building far away from you. The formulae is this: tan ( degree of angle ) X distance between you and the building.

19. 1. One key learning point would be to look at a problem in many different views to find the possible answer to the problem.

2. One needs to be determined to solve a problem, finds solving problems fun and interesting and be able to think out of the box creatively and accurately to solve a problem.

3. Finding out if a NRIC is legal or not using maths.

20. Name: Wee Ren Chang
1. I learned to try to find out different and easier ways to solve a puzzle.

2. Some traits are perseverance, discipline and intellectual curiosity and commitment. Some dispositions are to have the appropriate things that can help us such as the internet or a math teacher.

3. The clinometer, as we can measure a building easily.

21. 1. Puzzles in general are usually formed from a concept, then modified for variations. So, after understanding that specific concept, you will be able to solve several puzzle.

2. Perseverance and Discipline
- When studying mathematics, it can be difficult sometimes, so perseverance and discipline is needed to study it well.

3. To measure the height of a building, we can use one of the formulae used during the Mathematics Trail.

22. Name: Zach Zhang Bo
1. I learnt that i can't memorize mathematics like i do always. i must do it with my head.
2. i need discipline, perseverance, critical thinking and curiosity.
3. we can use it to measure the height of the building.

23. 1. I learn the method to check for illegal NRIC / Vehicle Number Plates Number.
2. Perserverance And Thinking Out Of The Box.
3. Catch People With Illegal NRiC Or Vehicle Number Plates.

Clarabelle Ang

24. 1.I learnt that there is always an answer to a math question.
2.Determintation and patience.
3.abilty to check if a NRIC number is real.
