Rambling Walk Around Singapore…

introduction
Introduction

To make this walk much more exciting and fun-filled, you will not only be exploring the nature side, parks as well as the cultural and historical landmarks of Singapore, but at each stop, you will be engaged in interesting and challenging mathematical activities.

In addition, the biggest takeaway would be to learn about Singapore’s heritage and history in just a walk!

instructions
Instructions
  • The rambling walk would be from 08:00 to 15:00.
  • All together you would be exploring 6 (excluding the final destination) stops in Singapore.
  • There are also prizes waiting for you to take home in addition to the treasures you find! Here are the prizes:

Third Stop

  • Third Stop: KTM Station at TanjongPagar
  • Geogebra Applet: Refer to Map 3 (Outram)
1 read the following extract2

Third Stop

1. Read the following extract:
  • The train service carries passengers from Singapore to Kuala Lumper, and from Kuala Lumper back to Singapore.
  • Recently, it has been announced that the KTM station will be dismantled soon because it will be relocated to Johor or Woodlands.
  • Many people have since flocked to the station to take photos for memories, or even buy the train tickets to have a last train ride before it goes.
2 task 3a

Third Stop

2. Task 3a:

Watch a train arrive at TanjongPagar KTM Station from point X. After a train has arrived at the station, watch the train return to the train depot. The train should be travelling at an average speed of 21m/s and take about 20s to enter the train depot. Given that DX = 205m, XE = 315m, find angle DXE.

Third Stop

4. Task 3b:

The KTM Station is intending to paint the area covered by DXE in black, but this proposal has been delayed because nobody know how to calculate the area. Also, it is too dangerous and inconvenient to measure the height of the triangle because trains frequently pass by DE. Give a try at calculating the area of DXE so that you get your next clue from the station control personnel.

2 task 4

Fourth Stop

2. Task 4
  • The government wants to build a shelter for the poor Merlion who has to withstand rain and hot sun day in and out. The shelter is to be triangular. However, the contractor is currently having troubles with finding out the 3 angles of the shelter. He only knows the following information:
  • The bearing of I from G is 099°.
  • The bearing of H from I is 230°.
  • The bearing of G from H is 015°.
  • Find 3 angles of the shelter. When you are done, call the contractor at 65778990 and he will tell you the clue for your next stop.
