VCE Maths Methods - making your Application Task engaging.


This workshop entails our experiences in writing a Maths Methods Application Task with a meaningful context to students. Have you ever bought an externally prepared Application Task and found it to be beyond the grasp or life-experience of your Year 12 class ? Trying to adapt the task can also provide a challenge. Having faced this obstacle on numerous occasions, we decided to make our own Application Task to prepare students to be able to think for themselves and to use CAS technology to solve problems which are non-routine, as well as provide a context that students would "enjoy solving". In this workshop, our experiences in writing and delivering the Application Task will be discussed as well as providing a sample task for use in your school.

A CAS calculator or graphing software is recommended.
