Work sample Year 10 Mathematics: Proof and conjecture

This work sample demonstrates evidence of student learning in relation to aspects of the achievement standards for Year 10 Mathematics. The primary purpose for the work sample is to demonstrate the standard, so the focus is on what is evident in the sample not how it was created. The sample is an authentic representation ...

Catalyst: Applying trigonometry: leaning tower

The Leaning Tower of Gingin is the centrepiece of the Gravity Discovery Centre. The Catalyst team of Derek, Simon and Anja drop watermelons from the tower, to examine the rate at which they fall. They are testing Galileo's theory about falling objects. The dimensions of the tower provide an opportunity to apply some basic ...

ABC News: Space debris: the accuracy of space lasers

In space there are thousands of human-made objects (satellites and space junk) orbiting Earth. To avoid collision with space debris, satellites are manoeuvred out of its path. Discover how space debris is tracked using lasers, and about accuracy's effects on the lifetime of the satellite. Find out, using trigonometry, the ...

reSolve: Gradient and Tangent

This sequence of two lessons investigates gradient and angle by applying the tangent ratio to find the angles represented by a road sign or the angle of a street. In the first lesson, students research what a road grade is and determine the actual angle of a road given its grade. They then construct their own road sign ...

reSolve: Trigonometric Trajectories

In this sequence of two lessons, students investigate trigonometric and Pythagorean relationships through two contexts: researching and building a model zipline ride and outlining a proposal for glider poles. In the first lesson, students apply trigonometric and Pythagorean relationships to investigate the dimensions of ...
