Description

Over the last ten years there has been a significant shift in how investigations are written and presented to students.

The syllabus states:

"Students use the mathematical thinking process and the statistical investigation process to plan, research, conduct and communicate, the findings of an investigation/project. They can investigate problems identifying the underlying mathematics, or select, adapt and apply models and procedures to solve problems. This assessment type provides for the assessment of the mathematical thinking process and statistical investigation process using course-related knowledge and modelling skills."

During this workshop participants need to bring examples. In small groups you will explore how to tweak existing investigations, create marking keys and brainstorm possible topics. After the workshop investigations will be shared with attendees.

Target audience Year 11 and 12 ATAR.
