It can be shown in activities that are part of larger projects, for example, ongoing school activities in the local community, as well as in small student-led activities.  Worked collaboratively with others Collaboration can be shown in many different activities, such as team sports, playing music in a band, or helping in a kindergarten. At least one project involving collaboration and the integration of at least two of creativity, action, and service is required.  Shown perseverance and commitment in their activities At a minimum, this implies attending regularly and accepting a share of responsibility for dealing with problems that arise in the course of activities.  Engaged with issues of global importance Students may be involved in international projects but there are many global issues that can be acted upon locally or nationally (for example, environmental concerns, caring for the elderly)  Considered the ethical implications of their actions Ethical decisions arise in most CAS activities (e.g., on the sports field, in musical composition, in relationships with others involved in service activities). Evidence of thinking about ethical issues can be shown in various ways, including journal entries and conversations with CAS advisors  Developed new skills As with new challenges, new skills may be shown in activities that the student has not previously undertaken, or in increased expertise in an established area.

Sladeʼs Braid In the 1880s, the American medium Henry Slade used to convince people that he had access to the Fourth Dimension the Spirit World using a strip of leather with two cuts along it. He would get someone to make a mark on the leather, to prevent substitution. Then he would hold it under the table for a few moments, and produce it again braided! In 4D space, strips can be passed over each other and woven together by pushing one temporarily into the Fourth Dimension, moving it into the right position, and then pulling it back into ordinary 3D space. That is what Slade pointed out, and what he claimed proved he had the ability to access the Fourth Dimension. How did he do it? Find the answer on the following page

Sixteen Matches Sixteen matches are arranged to form five identical squares. By moving exactly two matches, reduce the number of squares to four. All matches must be used, and every match should be part of one of the squares. Find the answer on the next page

Mathemagic ʻI am asking you to do some sumsʼ. ʻMy magic calculator will use the results to display your age and your house numberʼ: •

Enter your house number.

Double it.

Add 42.

Multiply by 50.

Subtract the year of your birth.

Subtract 50.

Add the number of birthdays you have had so far this year, i.e. 0 or 1.

Subtract 40.

ʻI now predict, that the last two digits of the result will be your age, and the remaining digits will be the number of your house.ʼ

Slicing the Doughnut If you cut this doughnut with three straight slices, what is the largest number of pieces you can create? (Youʼre not allowed to move the pieces between cuts.)

Experience Cambodia 2012 - Booklet

SOLUTIONS Riddles:

1) Short

2) Ton

4) The Sun never sets and rises at the same time

5) George

3) No, coins used the years before Christ始s birth did not display B.C.

Slade始s Braid Slade始s braid trick relies on a topological curiosity: his leather strip can be deformed, in perfectly ordinary 3D space, to end up braided. So all he had to do was fiddle with it under the table until it reached the braided state. I始ve separated the three strips in my picture to make the method clearer. This sequence of moves introduces six extra crossings of the three strips, so by repeating it you can make really long braids.

Slicing the Doughnut: 9 pieces can be obtained
