### When I post something online how permanent is it?

Students engage in a photo rip up activity to emphasize the permanency of online information, they explore factor trees, doubling and line graphs through the lens of sharing information, and they collaboratively develop a set of protocols around sharing information online.

### Use variables: Year 9 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 9 is for the topic of Use variables. Students apply and extend their knowledge and skills of exponent laws to simplify or expand numeric and algebraic expressions and solve equations.

### A Little Atmosphere

This activity invites students to model the scaled thickness of the atmosphere on a globe using sheets of transparency material. The activity includes a list of tools and materials required, what to do and notice, an explanation for the underlying science of what students observe and suggestions for further activities.

### 7N02A Square and cube numbers - Ochre Education

This unit of work focuses on square and cubic numbers. Students define and use exponent notation to write the square and cube operations; identify and recall square and cube numbers to at least 20² and 10³; evaluate squares and cubes of positive integers; evaluate square and cube roots of positive integer perfect squares ...

### 8N02A Rational numbers - Ochre Education

This unit of work focuses on rational numbers. Students define and write recurring non-terminating decimals using dot and vinculum notations; identify fractions that will have terminating or recurring non-terminating decimal expansions using the prime factorisation of the denominator in simplified form; convert between ...

### The maths behind RGB images

In this lesson, students explore the RGB (Red, Green, Blue) colour model commonly used in digital imaging and display systems. They learn how each colour in the RGB model is represented by 8 bits and understand why there are 256 color intensities for each channel. Students will represent the 8 bits using their mathematical ...

### Formulate and manipulate expressions: Year 10 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 10 is for the topic of Formulate and manipulate expressions. Students extend the distributive law to expanding the product of two binomials (ax + b)(cx + d) and the factorisation of non-monic quadratic expressions with integer coefficients. Students practise algebraic manipulation involving ...

### Inverse-square law

This activity invites students to explore why the world gets dark so fast outside the circle of the campfire. Using simple equipment, students can investigate the inverse square relationship for light spreading out over an area. The activity includes a list of tools and materials required, assembly instructions, what to ...

### Integers, Indices and Scientific Notation - Calculate

In this unit let’s apply index laws to mathematical expressions with integer indices! We’ll learn to express large and small numbers using scientific notation, enter and read scientific notation on a calculator and use index laws to make checks for number accuracy.

### 8N01A Integers - Ochre Education

This unit of work focuses on integers. Students add and subtract integers; establish multiplication and division of integers and build to raising to positive integer powers, square roots and cube roots; evaluate expressions involving combinations of operations and the use of brackets, fraction bars, and vinculums and consideration ...

### TIMES Module 35: Number and Algebra: the quadratic function - teacher guide

This is a 29-page guide for teachers. It introduces graphing of quadratic functions.

### Indices

This is a website designed for both teachers and students that addresses indices from the Australian Curriculum for year 9 students. It contains material on indices and explains the index laws and their use with integer indices. There are pages for both teachers and students. The student pages contain interactive questions ...

### The laws of arithmetic and their use in algebra

This is a website designed for both teachers and students that refers to algebraic notation, the laws of arithmetic and the use of these laws in algebra from the Australian Curriculum for year 7 students. It contains material on algebraic notation, the commutative and associative laws, the use of brackets and the orders ...

### TIMES Module 33: Number and Algebra: factorisation - teacher guide

This is a 17-page guide for teachers. It continues the discussion of factorisation. In particular, the techniques for the factorisation of quadratic expressions are presented.

### reSolve: Algebra: Think of a number- Binomial Equations

This lesson engages students in investigating a 'think of a number' game and then model it visually and algebraically. This develops skills in algebraic operations including expanding, factorising and collecting like terms. Students investigate whether the game will work for any number and are challenged to generate the ...

### reSolve: Prime factorisation

This sequence of four lessons explores prime factorisation. Students solve a puzzle using factor strings, play a dice game to learn about prime numbers, develop a method for finding all of the factors of a number, and engage in an investigation of highest common factors and lowest common multiples of two numbers, and how ...

### reSolve: Algebra: Sums & Differences of Squares

This sequence of three lessons explores sums and differences of two squares. Students are introduced to the historical context of using lookup tables for multiplications and challenged to investigate and generalise the underlying process using algebraic means. In subsequent lessons students use visual and algebraic methods ...

### Understanding exponents: 2

This resource is a short video presentation, with audio commentary, in which the meaning of exponents or powers of a number is explained. In the numerical example used the presenter explains the difference between evaluating the power of a number and the product of two numbers.

### Self Improvement Wednesday: The beauty of prime numbers

A prime number is a number that only has two factors: one and itself. Listen to Adam Spencer and Richard Glover discussing prime numbers. They cover how we define these numbers and how and why prime numbers are widely used in internet encryption.
