For the Mathematics Alternative Assesment for P6, my ds intends to choose "Break the Code". Is this topic difficult or time consuming? His seond choice is "Pigeon and Pigeon Holes" or "Statistics". Any advice? TIA.

Hi 8228, according to my dd, her math teacher told them that the previous students who chose to do "break the code" tend not to do so well... so she immediately puts a big cross over that topic :)

Does anyone know what Pigeon and Pigeon Holes are about? Is it difficult to do?

I think the teachers should provide more details before asking the pupils to make a choice. Now have to tikam tikam. If choose a very tough or time consuming one :stupid: :slapshead:

Ds and his class have enough time to decide on the topic. They were given the seven topics last Wed / Thurs and were told to submit the choice on Monday. Acording to ds, many picked Break the code because it looks fun to do (which ds did too). He did pigeon hole last yr as a project so he is not doing it again. I hv no idea what the rest of the topics are but my advice to ds was simple. Pick one which u will learn something new and interesting.
