“Computer is allowed. It is not necessary to be handwritten”. I was overjoyed when i heard this. This time I don’t have to show my awful and hard-2-read handwriting for my teacher to see. Well, this is about my Addmath Project. This year’s Form 4 student have to deal with Statistics of their exam result (i suppose it is the same through out Malaysia).
For those who’s using computer as their “writer”, I’m sure you have troubles with typing those formula, such as the min, sisihan piawai or varians formula. Here’s a solution, if you’re a Micro$oft Words XP user. I’m not sure about the older version, but I suppose newer version should work, or works almost the same. Stop those nonsense introduction, go straight to the point!!
GeminiGeek’s Guide to AddMath Project Using Your PC #1
- Make sure you have your Micro$oft Office XP cd with you. You will have to install Microsoft Equation 3.0. If you did a full installation, you can skip this process. If you did a Recommended Installation, then you will have to look through this step.
- Insert your cd. (duh~) Do a Add and Remove Feature
- All the feature available for installation will appear. Click on Office Tools
- Make Equation Editor run on your computer.
- Click Update so the Setup can update the installation.
- Alright, Step 2. Open your Micro$oft Words. Go to Insert –> Objects…. Under the Create New tab, scroll to Microsoft Equation 3.0. Check the Display as Icon (just check if you want more power)
- Then, a window will appear. You can type in the formula there. Make sure you have the Equation Editor Toolbar enable in your View, or else, you can do nothing. There’s quite a lot of fun stuff to do there. It’s kinda cool. Ok, when you’re done, Update (F3) and exit to Micro$oft Words.
- Now, you will see the Icon, but no EQUATION!!! Yikes, how? OK, now all you have to do is right click that icon, go to Equation Object –> Convert…. Now, uncheck the Display as Icon.
- And now, walla, you have the equation on your Micro$oft Words document. Cool, huh??
Here’s a note about the Display as Icon thing. Whenever you check that feature, editing an equation opens a new window. This is fairly important as this new feature allows you type Normal Text or customise the font or the look of the equation. Oh well, it’s up to you on how you want it to be. For me, i prefer to customize an equation in a new window.
Need more help? Feel free to leave a comment. I will reply ASAP. Since now is holiday, I will be online every night, so, you can also PM me through MSN Messenger. I’ll be posting Tips #2 on using your Micro$oft Excel. Well, it’s about playing with formula’s. Wait for it, ok?
Updates for AddMath Project 2008
I currently don’t have the questions for Addmath Project 2008. If any of you could nicely scan it or post it here, I would be more than happy to help you, if I can.
Updates for AddMath Project 2007
Due to massive response and ignorance of certain readers who are too lazy to even read the fucking comments, I decided to update the entry with all the replies I did in the comments. Please DON’T ASK ANYTHING THAT IS ALREADY MENTIONED HERE! I will delete the comments to prevent having comments overloaded. It suck up my hosting resource and it is not a good idea.
Form 5 Add Math Project
The question is about Ang, Bakar and Chandran, and the problems is related to calculating interests and compounding interest. Thanks to mAx for providing me the questions. Because interest rates and compounding interest is related to my studies, I am able to do most of the questions. I hope this guide is helpful for people looking for calculations help.
So here’s the solution:
1 a. Method one is progression and I suggest manual addition for the 2nd method. It shouldn’t be a problem that way. Just list all their monthly income and a total in a form of table. It is still a method, and I guess it’s not wrong to do so.
1 b. I’m sure you know how to count their income for 2nd year. Commenting is a very subjective questions, so just squeeze your brain and think for a while
1 c. I’m not sure if this calculation involved compound interest or not, but let’s just assume it involved compound interest. To count compound interest, you can use this formula:
Principle x (1 + interest rates)^(n Period) with interest rates express in over 100.
Since the interest rates are per annum, therefore you have to divide it into appropriate number of monthly renewal.
Interest rates per month: 0.025/12 = 1/480.
Since it is renewed every month, therefore the compounding interest rates per month is at 1/480 for 36 months.
Therefore: RM10000 x (1 + 1/480)^36 = Amount received after 3 years.
Interest rates every 3 months: 0.03/4 = 3/400.
Renewed every 3 months, so, compounding interest rates per 3 months is at 3/400 for 12 period of 3 months.
Therefore: RM10000 x (1 + 3/400)^12 = Amount received after 3 years.
Well, I guess after my calculation, you should be able to count Chandran’s receivable as well.
(ii) Again, this is a subjective question. So, please think about it yourself
2 (a) My additional maths knowledge is kinda rusty, so I am not sure how to count this if you’re asking for a method or formula. But, if you are to count manually (which is to add it up to 18 times), I can show you how. Here’s how:
Year 1: RM300 x (1.08) = RM324
Year 2: (RM 324 + RM300) x (1.08) = RM673.92
Year 3: (RM673.92 + RM300) x (1.08) = RM1051.8336
Year 4: and so on…
