Secondary mathematics: using real data

These seven learning activities, which focus on the use of 'real data' using a variety of tools (software) and devices (hardware), illustrate the ways in which content, pedagogy and technology can be successfully and effectively integrated in order to promote learning. In the activities, teachers use the three content strands ...

Triathlon: elite triathletes

Compile a news article reporting results of a major triathlon. Compare graphs of four triathletes' performance (distance against time) for the swimming, running and cycling legs of the course. Interpret the graphs to answer questions about each of the race legs and the overall performance of the four triathletes. Insert ...

Filling glasses: find the right glass

Look closely at some line graphs. Examine the relationship between the shape of a glass and the time taken to fill it with juice. Notice that the fluid level rises more quickly in a narrow glass than in a wide glass. Choose the glass shape that matches a line graph representing its filling rate. This learning object is ...

Triathlon: distance-time graphs

Watch triathletes performing in swimming, cycling and running legs of a triathlon. See how distance-time graphs are used to represent and compare race performances. Examine axis units, scales and gradients to compare course and performance variables. For example, notice that a flat line on a graph shows that an athlete ...

Filling glasses: graphing and comparing

Look closely at pairs of line graphs. See the relationship between the shape of a glass and the time taken to fill it with juice. Notice that the fluid level rises more quickly in a narrow glass than in a wide glass. Identify the other variables which determine the shape of each line graph. This learning object is one in ...

Filling glasses: create the right graph

Look closely at some line graphs. Examine the relationship between the shape of a glass and the time taken to fill it with juice. Notice that the fluid level rises more quickly in a narrow glass than in a wide glass. Choose both sections of a line graph representing the filling rate for a composite-shaped glass. This learning ...

Filling glasses: create the right glass

Look closely at some line graphs. Examine the relationship between the shape of a glass and the time taken to fill it with juice. Notice that the fluid level rises more quickly in a narrow glass than in a wide glass. Choose both parts of the composite-shaped glass to match a line graph representing its filling rate. This ...

Assessment resource

Triathlon: assessment

Test your understanding of distance–time graphs. For example, look closely at graphs of a triathlete's performance (distance against time) for the swimming, running and cycling legs of a triathlon. Interpret the graphs to answer questions about each of the race legs and the overall performance of that triathlete. Compare ...

Physical science: fan cart physics

Experiment with the effects of force and mass on acceleration by loading fans and blocks onto a cart. For example, load a cart with three fans and turn on one fan. Monitor the displacement, velocity and acceleration as the cart moves. Analyse tables and graphs to find out how these quantities vary with time. Discover the ...

Collection

Motion and forces

This collection of 15 digital curriculum resources is organised in three categories - measuring motion; effects of forces; and friction. The collection includes learning objects that demonstrate how motion can be represented and recorded, as well as investigating the forces that influence it. Graphical techniques are frequently ...

Triathlon: assessment: teacher guide

Use this resource with 'Triathlon: assessment' (L8274). First, see a profile of that assessment object, which gives you some helpful background information. Then follow clear guidelines on the interpretation of student's responses to questions based on interpreting information on a distance–time graph in the assessment object.

Integration

This is a teacher resource for integration consisting of a website and a PDF with identical content. The website contains a number of screencasts discussing the solutions of exercises, four interactives demonstrating estimations of area under curves, and accompanying screencasts describing the interactives. The resource ...

Interactive Resource

Was Galileo right?

This is an interactive resource about the effect of gravity on objects of various mass during free fall. Students investigate the effect of gravity on two objects and predict what the position-time and velocity-time graphs will look like. They then compare graphs for the light and heavy objects and explain the differences, ...
