    Factorization

    Some useful identities

    a^2 + 2ab + b^2 = (a + b)^2

    a^2 – 2ab + b^2 = (a – b)^2

    a^2 – b^2 = (a+b)(a-b)

    a^3 + b^3 = (a+b)(a^2-ab+b^2)

    a^3 – b^3 = (a-b)(a^2+ab+b^2)

    Investigative Problems & Number Patterns

    Problem Solving

    1. Reading and understanding the problem.

    2. Choosing an appropriate strategy to solve the problem.

    3. Apply the strategy.

    4. Check the answer and looking back.

    Some of the common strategies used in solving mathematics problems are:

    1. Simplify the problem
    2. Draw a diagram or table
    3. pattern recognition
    4. Trial and error
    5. Use of algebra
    6. Exhaustive listing
    7. Use of models
    8. Work backwards
    9. Solve part of the problem
    10. Eliminate the unlikely possibilities

    Simple Probability

    Definition
    If an event A can happen in m ways of n equality likely ways, then the probability or chance of n happening denoted by P(A) is defined as
    P(A) = m/n

    Probability that event A occurs
    =(number of outcomes favorable to the event of A)/(Total number of equality possible outcomes)

    Properties of Probability
    1. If A is an impossible event, then P(A)=0
    2. If A is a sure event, then P(A)=1
    3. if A is any events
    P(A)smaller or equal to 1
    P(A)greater or equal to 0

    Investigation Problem

    1+2+3+4………..+n =(1/2)(n)(n+1)

    General term Tn = a + (n-1)d
    a = first term
    d= common difference

    Triangular numbers
    1
    3 = 1+2
    6 = 1+2+3
    10 = 1+2+3+4

    Greatest and Smaller Values

    If X is between 2 and 10
    If Y is between 1 and 15
    Both X and Y are positive number

    Max (X+Y) = 10+15 = 25
    Min (X-Y) = 2-15 = – 13

    Max (X-Y) = 10-1 = 9
    Min (X-Y) = 2-1 = 1

    Max (XY) = 10*15 = 150
    Min (XY) = 2*1 = 2

    Max (X/Y) = 10/1 = 10
    Min (X/Y) = 2/15

    Transformation Part 1

    1. Reflection
    A reflection is a transformation which reflects all points of a plane in a line (on the plane)called the mirror line.

    2. Rotation
    A rotation is a transformation which rotates all points on a plane about a fixed point (called the centre of rotation)through a given angle in anti-clockwise or clockwise direction. The angle through which the points are rotated is called the angle of rotation.

    Transformation Part 2

    1. Translation
    A translation is a transformation which moves all points in a plane through the same distance in the same direction

    2. Enlargement
    An enlargement, centre O and scale factor k is a transformation which enlarges a given figure k times the original size.
