Making the Connection


Queensland is preparing for external examinations from 2020 by combining lessons from other states with our existing focus on modelling and problem-solving. For students to pursue studies in Mathematics we need to show them that it is meaningful, applicable and connected. We also need to teach effective study skills for students to be successful in an external testing environment.

This presentation will share activities to make connections across topics using bar modelling and the unitary method, linear modelling and multiple representations. QUT’s STEM for Schools run workshops integrating STEM fields so that students see the connections and how that applies in the real world.

At St Aidan’s Anglican Girls’ School we have between a quarter and a third of students studying advanced mathematics, compared to seven percent nationally. Strategies for success include interleaving, retrieval and spacing effects. These study skills were trialled in an action research project addressing metacognitive monitoring.
