HONG KONG DIPLOMA OF SECONDARY EDUCATION EXAMINATION MATHEMATICS Compulsory Part SCHOOL-BASED ASSESSMENT Sample Assessment Task Swimming Pool 教育局 課程發展處 數學教育組 Mathematics Education Section, Curriculum Development Institute The Education Bureau of the HKSAR Instructions 1. This task consists of THREE parts, Part A to Part C. Students are required to attempt ALL parts. 2. Numerical answers should be either exact or in surd form. 3. All working must be clearly shown. Teacher Guidelines 1. This task requires students to (a) carry out calculations of volumes and surface areas of prisms; (b) investigate the changes of surface areas of some bases of figures; (c) use the properties of quadratic functions to solve practical problems. 2. It is anticipated that, in general, students can complete the task in 1.5 hours. However, teachers can exercise their professional judgment to adjust the time allowed to cater for the ability level of their students. 3. Teachers may feel free to modify the questions and the marking guidelines to cater for the ability level of their students. 4. Feedback should be provided to students after marking the task. For instance, teachers can discuss different approaches of handling each part of the task with students. Swimming Pool (E) 2 Part A Figure 1 below shows a rectangular swimming pool ABCDEFGH with length 50 m , width 25 m and depth 1.3 m . B C G 1.3 m F A D H 50 m 25 m E Figure 1 1. What is the volume of the swimming pool? 2. What is the total surface area of the swimming pool? Part B The swimming pool in Part A has been renovated in such a way that the depth is changed, while the length and width remain the same. Besides, the bottom of the renovated swimming pool is covered by new tiles. Figure 2 shows the renovated swimming pool. B C F A D Shallow end 1 m N 5m E Deep end 6 m G Figure 2 H 5m M 1. If DE = 1 m , AH = 6 m and HM = NE = 5 m , find the length of MN . 2. What is the bottom surface area of the swimming pool before renovation? 3. Guess which swimming pool (the original or the renovated one) needs more tiles to cover the bottom. Explain your answer. [Hint: You may consider the bottom surface area of the swimming pool.] Swimming Pool (E) 3 Part C A springboard is installed 1 m above the water surface at the deep end of the renovated swimming pool (refer to Figure 3). y The path of the diver Springboard P ym 1m A D Shadow end 1m xm Water surface N 5m E Deep end 6m H 5m M Figure 3 A rectangular coordinate system with A as the origin is introduced in Figure 3 . Tony jumps from the springboard at P into the swimming pool. The equation of his diving path is given by y 5 x2 6 x 1 (where the height of Tony from the water surface of the swimming pool is y m and the horizontal distance of the diver from A is x m). 1. What is the maximum height above the water surface of the swimming pool that Tony can attain in his jump? 2. If Tony reaches the water surface of the swimming pool at Q , what is the length of AQ ? 3. Diving is regarded as safe if a diver reaches the water surface at a point which is ranging from 1.5 m to 4.5 m from A . Is Tony’s diving safe? If not, suggest to Tony a safe diving path (the corresponding equation of the diving path should be given). END OF ASSESSMENT TASK Swimming Pool (E) 4 x
