Year 10 Maths Assignment

Your assignment is to write approximately two pages of size 12 text on one of the following Mathematics topics. It should be the kind of thing that someone with very little maths knowledge can understand. You can include pictures, diagrams, and anything else that may help explain your topic. The topics are quite complex, it's your job to make them simple. Do not copy and paste; it must be in your own words. I can and will check this.

Here are the topics:
  • Knot theory.
  • Catastrophe theory.
  • Fractels.
  • Imaginary numbers.
  • Matrix algebra.
  • Differential Equations.
  • Calculus.
  • Set Theory.
You should make sure you cover all of the following aspect on your report:
  • A brief, simple description of the topic.
  • How and when the topic came to be invented, and who was involved.
  • What the topic is used for in the Mathematics world.
  • If it has been applied to the real world, how?
You have the next two periods and then the holidays to complete this. Remember to reference where you get your information from.

If you have any questions, email me at and I will get back to you as soon as I can, but it won't be until the holidays because I am on camp.

Here are a few good websites to make a start with:

Have fun!
