INTRODUCTION

Math is the real world, its everywhere.

I get this sentence from the famous American Series NUMB3RS.

Mathematics is the study of quantity, structure, space and change.

Mathematicians seek out patterns, formulate new conjectures, and

establish truth by rigorous deduction from appropriately chosen

axioms and definitions. We use mathematics to solve simple

mathematic equation and compare the price of product in our daily

life. In fact, mathematics knowledge has been applied in various

fields such as astronomy, business, computing, architecture and the

list goes on. In the NUMB3RS, famous American Series, it shows that

mathematics can be used to predict criminal activities.

Furthermore, mathematics is also being used in the construction

of buildings. With mathematics, we can determine the height of

building, the stability of the building against wind resistance or

earthquake, and the shape of the building which is the most ideal

and unique. Besides, we can calculate the cost needed to construct

a building. Mathematics also helps us to save up cost of

construction by determining the shape of the building which built.

An architect must have this knowledge in order to predict and build

the building exactly the cost that is required to spend.

We can eventually do many things that are beyond our

imagination if we further explore the great mystery of mathematics.

Therefore I am very sure that I will certainly attain and learn

something which benefits me in daily life.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

First of all, I would like to thank sincerely to my parents for

providing me everything that is required to complete this project.For instance, they give me money to buy anything related to this

project work, their advice, and facilities such as computers, books,

and reference material. My parents greatly supported and

encouraged me in order to build my confidence to do this task so

that I will not procrastinate in doing it.

Furthermore, I would like to say thank you to my teacher, Pn.

Zuwariyah, for guiding me throughout this project. She taught us

patiently to do the project, without any complaint. Even when I met

some hardship and difficulties, she taught me patiently until I got

what she mean and what must I do. She tried and did not give up

teaching me until I finished the project successfully.

HISTORY

The product rule and chain rule, the notion of higher

derivatives, Taylor series, and analytical functions were introducedby Isaac Newton in an idiosyncratic notation which he used to solve

problems of mathematical physics. In his publications, Newton

rephrased his ideas to suit the mathematical idiom of the time,

replacing calculations with infinitesimals by equivalent geometrical

arguments which were considered beyond reproach. He used the

methods of calculus to solve the problem of planetary motion, the

shape of the surface of a rotating fluid, the oblate ness of the earth,

the motion of a weight sliding on a cycloid, and many other

problems discussed in his Principia Mathematics. In other work, he

developed series expansions for functions, including fractional and

irrational powers, and it was clear that he understood the principles

of the Taylor series.

These ideas were systematized into a true calculus of

infinitesimals by Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, who was originally

accused of plagiarism by Newton. He is now regarded as an

independent inventor of and contributor to calculus. His contribution

was to provide a clear set of rules for manipulating infinitesimal

quantities, allowing the computation of second and higher

derivatives, and providing the product rule and chain rule, in their

differential and integral forms. Unlike Newton, Leibniz provided were

the laws of differentiation and integration, second and higher

derivatives, and the notion of an approximating polynomial series.

By Newtons time, the fundamental theorem of calculus was known.

The diagram below shows the gate of an art gallery. A concrete

structure is built at the upper part of the gate and the words ARTGALLERY is written on it. The top of the concrete structure is flat

whereas the bottom is parabolic in shape. The concrete structure is

supported by two vertical pillars at both ends.

The distance between the two pillars is 4 metres and the height of

the pillar is 5 metres. The height of the concrete structure is 1

metre. The shortest distance from point A of the concrete structure

to point B, that is the highest point on the parabolic shape, is 0.5

metres.

PROBLEM SOLVING

(a)The parabolic shape of the concrete structure can be representedby various functions depending on the point of reference. Based

on different points of reference, obtain at least three different

functions which can be used to represent the curve of this

concrete structure.

For function 1:

Maximum point (0,4.5) and pass through point (2,4)

b=0, c=4.5

FURTHER EXPLORATION

(a)You are given four different shapes of concrete structure as

shown in the diagrams below. All the structures have the same

thickness of 40 cm and are symmetrical.

(i) Given that the cost to construct 1 cubic metre of concrete is

RM840.00, determine which structure will cost the minimum to

construct.

Structure 1Ignoring the pillars,

Area = 2

Volume = 2 x 0.4

=1

Cost needed =1 x RM840

=RM896.00

Structure 2

14

• 8/3/2019 Add Math Project 2

15/20

Ignoring the pillars,

Area = 4(0.5)+ 2( )(2)(0.5)

= 3

Volume = 3 x 0.4

=1.2

Cost needed =1.2 x RM840

=RM1008.00

Structure 3Ignoring the pillars,

Area = 4(0.5)+ 1.5(0.5)

= 2.75

Volume = 2.75 x 0.4

=1.1

Cost needed =1.1 x RM840

=RM924.00

Structure 4Ignoring the pillars,

Area = 4(0.5)+ 1(0.5)

= 2.5

Volume = 2.5 x 0.4

=1

Cost needed =1 x RM840

=RM840.00

Therefore, structure 4 will cost minimum to construct.

(ii) As the president of the Arts Club, you are given the opportunity

to decide on the shape of the gate to be constructed. Which shape

would you choose? Explain and elaborate on your reasons for

choosing the shape.

As the president of the Arts Club, I will choose the shape as the

structure 4. Owing to the fact that the cost needed to build the

whole structure is cheaper than the other three concrete structure.

Assuming that the height of pillars is constant for all the four

structures, the cost which is used to construct the shape like the

structure 4 is only RM 840.00 while the other 3 structures cost

higher than structure 4 that is RM840.00.

(b)The following questions refer to the concrete structure in the

diagram below. If the value of k increase with a common

difference of 0.25 m;

(i) Complete Table 1 by finding the values ofkand the

corresponding areas of the concrete structure to be painted.

k(m) Area to be painted ( )

(correct to 4 decimal places)

0.00 3.00000.25 2.93750.50 2.87500.75 2.8125

1.00 2.75001.25 2.6875

1.50 2.62501.75 2.56252.00 2.5000

(ii) Observe the values of the area to be painted from Table 1. Oyou see any pattern? Discuss.

There is a pattern in the area to be painted.

The area to be painted decreases as the k increases 0.25m and form

a series of numbers:

3, 2.9375, 2.875, 2.8125, 2.75, 2.6875, 2.625, 2.5625, 2.5

We can see that the difference between each term and the next

term is the same.

2.9375 3 = -0.0625

2.875 2.9375 = -0.0625

2.8125 2.875 = -0.0625

2.75 2.8125= -0.0625

2.6875 2.75= -0.0625

2.625 2.6875 = -0.0625

2.5625 2.625 = -0.0625

2.5 2.5625 = -0.0625 Therefore, we can deduce that this series of numbers is an

Arithmetic Progression (AP), with a common difference, d = -0.0625

In conclusion, when k increases 0.25m, the area to be painted

decreases by -0.0625

(iii) Express the area of the concrete structure to be painted in

terms ofk. Find the area when kapproaches the value of 4

and predict the shape of the concrete structure.

Let area to be painted = A

A = 2 +

A = 2 + 1 -

A = 3 -

17

18/20

When kapproaches 4,

A = 3 -

A = 2

The shape of the concrete structure will be a rectangle as when k=

4, the value of k is the same as the length of upper part of the

concrete structure.

Conclusion

A gate is a point of entry to a space enclosed by walls, or a

moderately sized opening in a fence. Gates may prevent or controlentry or exit, or they may be merely decorative. Other terms for

gate include yett and port.

Larger gates can be used for a whole building, such as a castle or

fortified town, or the actual doors that block entry through the

gatehouse. Other than that, selection of gate also depends on

beautifying or some religious believe in fengshui which brings luck

in life.

As I doing this project, I notice that quadratic function and

integration can be so close in our daily life. There are many shape of

gate outside there. Different shapes of the gate have different cost.

From quadratic function and integration, we can know area of the

gate. From the area we can get volume of the gate. As the result,

we can know cost of the gate by times volume with RM840 (price for

1m)

After we know concept of quadratic function and integration,

we can apply it in our life. In order to meet the budget or saving

money, we can capable to decide on

which shape or design more favorable and reasonable.

REFLECTION

While conducting this project, a lot of information that I found. I

have learnt how to build a concrete gate structure with good quality

and proper price.

Apart from that, this project encourages the student to work

together and share their knowledge. It is also encourage student to

gather information from the internet, improve thinking skills and

promote effective mathematical communication.

Last but not least, I proposed this project should be continue

because it brings a lot of moral values to the student and also test

the students understanding in Additional Mathematics.
