Dogball is an enigma. The bouncy toy exterior hides a rich yet accessible modelling task within; a delicious intersection of maths and science, a potential PSMT/Folio task for Stage 1 Mathematical Methods featuring low floor, high ceiling and room for …
Below is a video outlining a solution answering the questions posed in the resource “Dogball 2.0 – A Study of Bounce – Part 1“. It is not intended to be the best or only way to answer these questions. It …
Below you can access: DOGBALL.pdf – a currently-brief but mostly complete summary of the activity you experienced. vdbcgraw.csv – the csv file of the data we used in the activity – which is a subset of the data that was …
This unit uses the context of generosity to introduce a need to have a fractional way of thinking about something.
It develops a way of thinking about fractions – the for-every idea – that is the elusive multiplicative model.
Developed over about 5 years, this approach has been tried and seems to work. 🙂
A selection of documents that share some nice ideas about exponential functions, trigonometric functions and a lovely context where both concepts come together.
Download a program that will creates the number of samples you desire, of a size you define from a normal population with standard deviation and mean you define.
This video and documents outline a 4 session course that aim to assist students to develop the optimal ways-of-thinking about the ideas that underpin calculus.
This document presents an approach or approaches to the 2011 WACE Mathematics 3C3D Examination. These approaches incorporate the use of CAS as well as ‘by hand’ solution methods. At times two alternative methods are presented. The providing of two solutions is intended to encourage a conversation between teachers and students about the most deserning and efficient way to tackle the mathematics presented in this form of assessment.
A ‘how to’ companion book for the Tasmanian General Maths 3 course written by Gary Anderson.
