Maths Applied Investigations



Maths Applied Investigations

Not all learning should take place at a desk with a book and a pen. Enquiry, investigation and interpretation are important elements of the study of any subject. Investigations which involve active participation, the collection of ‘real world’ data, or, the analysis of a real world problem, result in higher levels of student engagement. This book was compiled to encourage a stronger investigative aspect to the Maths Applied level 5 course.

It is a resource that teachers can freely use, adjust and modify in the teaching of this course.  We encourage you to contribute to this collection and provide feedback to us.

Thank you to both authors for this resource. John Short  john.short@education.tas.gov.au  and  Gary Anderson gary.anderson@education.tas.gov.au
