This category is reserved for the modules given under CAVM' schools and programs

The module aims to equip students with the knowledge and confidence to help them to develop skills, attitudes and values to successfully implement the mathematics CBC at secondary schools. The module deepens the concepts introduced in Module MAT 1141 by exploring functions in one real variable through topology of IR, series and sequences, limits and continuity of functions, polynomial, trigonometric, exponential and logarithmic functions, derivative and applications, integrals and applications.

Project-Based Learning (PBL) is a teaching and learning approach in which complex real world problems are explored to promote students' learning of concepts and principles rather than a direct presentation of concepts and facts. This is in line with Competence Based Curriculum (CBC) which is currently being implemented in Rwanda's education system. It is in this framework that the beeswax-based project was undertaken.

The beeswax is chemically made of esters of long-chain alcohols and fatty acids (Hepburn et al., 2014; Warth, 1956) made by honeybees (Genus Apis). They are known as producers of wax called beeswax due to the worker beeswax-producing glands (Coggshall & Morse, 1984). Honey carbohydrates mainly fructose, glucose, sucrose are the raw materials for wax formation. After being produced in wax glands, the wax is discarded in the hive and normally used by the bees to make cells for honey storage within the beehives. Thus, it is a construction material for honeycombs (Bogdanov, 2016).

This project is an application of acquired skills in different chemistry concepts such as chemistry and society, chemical reactions and equations, and functional groups of organic compounds. It will mainly cover raw beeswax processing, candle, beeswax body lotion and shoe polish making among others.
