What's up in Term 2 Week 9 & Week 10.... till end of June Holidays

There are only 2 periods in Term 2 week 9 & 10.

While we take time to unwind, we'll need to touch base with what we learnt in Semester 1 and get ready for Term 3.

Below are several things we need to accomplish in the next 6 weeks (including the June Holidays):


1. June Holidays Engagement (1) Revision [Hardcopy issued on 16 May 2016, Monday]
  • Tier A (estimated: 1 hour):
    • For those who did not score A1 for the Common Test paper. Optional for others.
    • Specific areas have been identified for you to re-visit and clarify
    • You are strongly encouraged to complete this tier before Term 2 closes so that you can clarify your doubts with me (in school or via email)
  • Tier B (estimated 5 hours):
    • For everybody
Suggestion
Start early and stagger the tasks over the 6 weeks (average: 1 hour per week)
Do not get yourself stressed up/out because you need to do a lot of work within a short time.


2. June Holidays Engagement (2) Planning ahead

The following topics are in the pipeline:
  • Inequalities
  • Unit 09 Functions and Linear Graphs
  • Unit 10 Data Handling

Preparation Tasks:

2.1. Unit 09 Functions and Linear Graphs
2.2 Unit 10 Data Handling
  • Study notes will only be given in Term 3.
  • Attempt Mission Possible - that requires you to recap what you learnt in Primary School
  • This is a diagnostic activity to assess how much you could recall and how clearly you could articulate and present your train of thought.
    • Read the Introduction and Tasks in the GoogleSite
    • 4 collections of tasks are presented. You are only required to answer ONE question from each collection.
    • Submit your work in the padlets via the Maths Blog (see tab above) before Term 2 ends
      • Deadline: 27 May 2016

3. Maths File

Remember to file all the handouts (study notes, assignments, etc) assigned to-date into the Maths file, and have it tidy up during the school holidays.

These materials would be very useful whenever you need to make reference to.


Coordinate Geometry in Movie Making!

"Coordinate Geometry" is the topic that we will learn in Term 3, Functions and Linear Equations.
