Analytical skills: The assignment enables the students to analyse and evaluate the benefits of the different activities done in the class. Research skills. This skill will eventually help them understand and evaluate the meaning, concept and solution of percentages, powers and roots, algebraic expressions and equations. In addition, the Coursework will test the following learning outcomes: ? ? Use and demonstrate understanding of basic mathematical terminology and notation Demonstrate an ability to quantify and handle data in a variety of forms Pg. 3 Version 1 Assignment Task Using references to relevant theories, concepts and appropriately chosen examples about rules of signed numbers and powers, percentages, quadratics and simultaneous system of equations and write an assignment of 2000 words for the following topic. 1. 2. 3. 4. Rules of signed numbers and powers Percentage problems Numbers in the standard form Algebraic fractions and quadratic equation Your report should contain the following: ? Introduction: Introduction which will reflect the discussion about the concept of rules of signed numbers and powers. (200 words equivalent) ? Discussion and Calculation Calculation of reverse percentages and repeated percentages a) Student needs to include the discussion of the concept of reverse percentages. Provide an example in finding the price after the sales discount or purchases discount. Provide an example in finding the amount of wages or salaries after the pay rise. Explain your calculation. (300 words equivalent) b) Student needs to include the discussion of the concept of repeated percentages. Provide an example about repeated percentage change for compound amount and depreciation using the formula.

Plagiarism, which can be defined as using without acknowledgement another person’s words or ideas and submitting them for assessment as though it were one’s own work, for instance by copying, translating from one language to another or unacknowledged paraphrasing. Further examples of plagiarism are given below: Use of any quotation(s) from the published or unpublished work of other persons, whether published in textbooks, articles, the Web, or in any other format, which quotations have not been clearly identified as such by being placed in quotation marks and acknowledged. Use of another person’s words or ideas that have been slightly changed or paraphrased to make it look different from the original. Summarising another person’s ideas, judgments, diagrams, figures, or computer programmes without reference to that person in the text and the source in a bibliography or reference list. Use of services of essay banks and/or any other agencies. Use of unacknowledged material downloaded from the Internet. Re-use of one’s own material except as authorised by the department. 2. Collusion, which can be defined as when work that has been undertaken by or with others is submitted and passed off as solely as the work of one person. This also applies where the work of one candidate is submitted in the name of another. Where this is done with the knowledge of the originator both parties can be considered to be at fault. 3. Fabrication of data, making false claims to have carried out experiments, observations, interviews or other forms of data collection and analysis, or acting dishonestly in any other way. Plagiarism Detection Software (PDS) As part of its commitment to quality and the maintenance of academic standards, the University reserves the right to use Plagiarism Detection Software (PDS), including Turnitin. Such software makes no judgment as to whether a piece of work has been plagiarised; it simply highlights sections of text that have been found in other sources. The use of plagiarism detection software fulfills two functions. The first is to enhance student learning (i.e. as a developmental tool); the second is to guard against and identify unfair practice in assessment. Further information and guidance can be found in the University’s policy on the Use of Plagiarism Detection Software.
