Today, I discussed questions on Plan & Elevation with my 5KA girls. Questions on this topic usually requires student to draw the plan (view from above), the front or the side elevation of a 3-dimensional object. The diagrams must be drawn using the actual measurements given. Every year this topic came out in the SPM Mathematics Paper 2. Students are advised to be well verse with this topic coz it carries 12 marks and are quite easy as it does not require any calculations to be done. Example of the questions on this topic are shown below:
The first part of the question usually requires student to draw the plan (view from above) of a solid object. Example :
Then the second part of the question usually requires students to draw the elevation of the combined solid (with another solid added or parts of the original solid removed) as viewed from the direction given.
These questions require students to imagine how the solids looks like when viewed from above or from the directions given.
