GEOGRAPHY
Having travelled to many countries in your life, I am sure each holds fond memories in its own unique way, be it
the majestic mountains or its rich culinary tradition. However , one always longs to be back HOME.
As Dubai prepares to host Expo 2020 , think about a few changes you want to make to your home city .

Use your imagination. The sky is the limit. Have fun. Want your country to be under ground? Go for it. Want it to be
city with flying cars !! fine. There are just two rules. First it must be magical , inspiring, futuristic, never seen .
Second, you must make at least five major changes and validate the changes suggested. All changes must be linked
to real life geographical problems that we residents face. (These may be related to the *physical or * human and
economic geography of Dubai)

*If youre not sure of the meaning of these terms, please read up on them.

It just wouldnt be a geography project unless we had maps. You need to draw one map of Dubai 2020 your
way . Alternatively you may use an existing map of Dubai , and incorporate changes in it .

You should find some useful guidelines below to help you compile your project. Remember , to be make it your
own genuine project. Have fun!

3. DRAWING OF MAP: In all Map Work, by a wise use of arrows to indicate positions of countries, cities and other
insertions that you make, you will be able to avoid overcrowding parts of the map.
Each of your maps must have a scale, a compass rose, and any lakes, rivers, mountains, or other major physical
features. They should be colourful, creative and neat. A4 size paper must be used to draw or make your map .
Again the more detail the better.

MATHEMATICS

Project 1:
Topic: To determine the total surface area of a right circular cylinder.
Objective: To verify that the total surface area of a right circular cylinder is
2( + )
Method:
Using coloured A4 size paper; construct two 3D cylinders with radius
3cm and height 6cm and paste one of them on another A4 sheet.
Divide the other cylinder into three 2D parts and identify them.
Paste these figures on a separate A4 size sheet.
Evaluate areas for these three 2D figures.
Add these areas to verify that total surface area of right circular
cylinder is 2( + )
Write one real life situation where this result can be applied.

glasses of inner diameter 5 cm to serve the customers. The height
of the glasses is 10 cm. (Use =3.14)
Type A:

the ratio of squares of the corresponding sides.

Method:
On A4 paper; construct two equilateral triangles ABC and PQR of side 5
inches and 3 inches respectively.
.Divide each side of ABC in 5 equal parts and PQR in 3 equal parts
Now join the corresponding points so that the lines formed are parallel to the
respective sides of the triangle
Count the number of smaller triangles of same size formed in ABC and
PQR
Using the above observations verify the result showing the mathematical
calculation.
Using your knowledge of similar triangles and information given below find the
height of the Burj Khalifa Tower:
A mirror is placed on the
ground so that the top of
the Burj Khalifa Tower
can be seen by you in the
mirror. You are facing the
tower and looking into the
mirror. Take your height as
1.80 m. You are 6 m away
from the mirror and observe
the top of the tower when
the mirror is 2.76 km from the tower, (Draw the two similar triangles) find the
height of Burj Khalifa Tower.
