Mathematica case-study, year 9 Melbourne Girls Grammar

Summary

Participants in this workshop will be shown some of the work done in semester 1 this year at MGGS, where year 9 students embarked on a series of collaborative activities in the use of Mathematica and the Wolfram Language—with a focus on Linear Relations. You will see how students were presented with challenge and discovery tasks with little or no previous experience with the software. A subsequent student project will be discussed, with a focus on both easily managed and more difficult ideas, concepts and Wolfram Language functionality. You can expect to take away ideas, activities and tools for use in your own classroom, and some reflection on matters to do with the introduction of Mathematica/Wolfram Language as a CAS technology tool. For most effective participation a laptop with Mathematica software already loaded is desirable (no computer lab facilities are available).
