Capturing the Spirit of a Year 12 Methods Investigation


Like us, you may have had difficulty constructing an investigation that you felt met the requirements for the major analysis SAC task in Unit 3 Methods, but was also accessible to students of varying abilities.
In this session we will show you how we used a range of resources made available by VCAA and old CAT tasks from the 1990s to develop a unique and challenging mathematical investigation, that we believe captured the spirit of the intentions documented in the current study design. Students used a combination of CAS technology and DESMOS graphing software to accompany their investigation.
We will share our SAC as well as some of the preparatory tasks.
Please bring a laptop and CAS calculator.
