The Connect with Maths~ Maths in Action community launch recorded on Monday July 7, 2014 was opened by Will Morony, AAMT CEO. The webinar is presented by Peter Galbraith and Vince Geiger. Thank you again to Peter and Vince for the informative session explaining the key concepts of the Mathematical Applications and Modelling community resource.
“Exploring Real World Problems" Peter Galbraith and Vince Geiger focus this session on using mathematics to explore real world problems. The aims and objectives of the Maths in Action community are discussed, including links to the numeracy agenda. Tasks using modelling and numeracy approaches then follow, with the use of technologies incorporated. Commonalities and differences between approaches to modelling and numeracy instruction will be explored. Implications for practice and connections to the Australian Curriculum will also be considered – including the identification of situations which support applications and modelling approaches.
