Ms Geraldine Lewin’s Year 10 Mainstream Maths class was set four challenging, modelling and problem solving tasks to complete as part of the Measurement Topic during their lesson.
They had to work collaboratively on the Measurement Task using the skills learnt in class. This involved understanding and exploring each of the problems posed, developing a strategy to solve the problem, testing the strategy with logic and reasoning, reflecting on and justifying a solution. This incorporated using clear communication skills in groups in order to complete the task. Students were able to use the CAS calculator and incorporate technology as part of their problem solving techniques.
The girls were challenged to think critically. After a long period of remote learning the girls enjoyed the opportunity to work collaboratively, communicating their ideas.
