Saharan Loi Professor Loi, I managed to start it up again!

Professor Loi What have I always told you about China-made nuclear products? *tsk tsk*

Anyway, let’s see what happened on O Level EMaths Paper 2 in 2013! I can literally feel their excitement a millennium later!

The Walls Whisper My Name

The Wall Whispers My Name

The Wall of Gratitudes, The Second Temple circa 2013

The last AMaths student has just left The Temple, leaving me alone to scribble out the much-demanded 2013 O Level EMaths 4016 Paper 2 suggested solutions, under the glare of the majestic Wall of Gratitudes.

Fending off the irritating drilling from the renovation works at Udders Ice Cream downstairs, as well as the despairing fact that the United Square foodcourt has closed for the day (which means another 吃风 night), I focused on the task at hand, with only the silent encouragement from the words on the Wall to spur me on …

As usual, please, please leave a comment should you spot any mistake in the solution. AMaths joss sticks sessions ended late tonight 🙁

Note:

  1. Before you ask questions like “I lost x marks in Paper 2, can I still get A1/A2/B3/B4/pass?” or “What is the cutoff for A1/A2/B3/B4/C5/C6/D7/E8/F9 this year?”, please understand that Miss Loi is NOT the Bell Curve Goddess.
  2. Please also understand that, unless things have changed, there is no half-mark awarded in O-Level Maths. Also it is nigh impossible for ECF if the part involved only carries 1 mark.

I wish all those taking AMaths Paper 1 tomorrow All THE VERY BEST.

Till the next journal entry …


*self power-off*

頑張って!!!

    Ms Loi! why is standard deviation the same 🙁 i wrote that but after reading again, the question is like saying that how it changes. 🙁 why... last qn btw.

    •  
      1.1

      @changing-too-much: The standard deviation measures the spread of a set of data from its mean.

      In Q10(iv), it was found that the heights were all 5 cm less than what was recorded
      ⇒ all values have fallen by 5 cm but spread is unchanged.

      To put this (very) simplistically, for e.g. A's height is 20cm while B's height is 10 cm.
      The difference in their heights (as a rough measure of A's 'spread' from B) is thus
      20 cm − 10 cm = 10 cm.

      If both A and B's heights are reduced by 5 cm, A's height becomes 15 cm and B's height becomes 5 cm.
      But the difference in their heights is still 15 cm − 5 cm = 10 cm

      If you still don't believe Miss Loi, here's a detailed calculation of the "new" standard deviation after all heights are reduced by 5 cm

      xffxfx²
      151115122801
      155115524025
      157115724649
      159115925281
      162116226244
      163116326569
      166116627556
      167233455778
      169116928561
      173117329929
      176117630976
      178117831684
      185118534225
      Σ142328388278

      New standard deviation = \sqrt{\frac{388278}{14}-\left ( \frac{2328}{14} \right )^{2}} ≈ 9.12 (3sf)
      = Original standard deviation!

    May i know the acceptable gradient range??? is it plus minus one?
    ALso for 6bii, can i just calculate QP and halved it or must i prove its similar... will i get any marks if i did not prove similar???

      3.1

      @vonne: Yes there'll always be a tolerable range of answers when it comes to graph plotting questions. Every year, Miss Loi has to say this:

      As long as you've demonstrated that you've obtained the gradient (within a tolerable range) at the point via calculating the gradient of your suitably-drawn tangent based on selected coordinates from your plot, you'd be fine 😉

      For Q6(b)(ii), since it's been given as a regular hexagon, we can probably assume that OA bisects ∠QAP (actually this is an obscure property of regular polygons) and hence QX = XP.

      So though it may not be necessary to go through the similarity proof, it's good to at least state something like the above just to be on the safe side, even though this part only carries 2 marks.

    Hey, just a question. For q8, the whole question i used the correct method but calculation was off. I took OB=sin20 x 0.6m instead of 0.6/sin20. And my whole question was wrong, will there be any ECF to make up for the heavy loss of marks? T_T

    Hey. What if I change the angle in radian wrongly but the subsequent parts need to make use of the angle in radian. Will I get the full marks for the subsequent question if I use the correct method but wrong angle? Thanks!
