### Graphs: Year 10 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 10 is for the topic of Graphs. Students connect the graphical representation of exponential functions and their corresponding exponential rule. They use digital tools to explore how systematically making changes to the value of the base, pronumerals or variables changes the shape of the corresponding ...

### Mathematical modelling (Algebra): Year 10 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 10 is for the topic of Mathematical modelling. Students apply linear, quadratic and exponential functions to modelling contexts and outline reasons for selecting a particular model. They use tables of values to look for patterns in data, recognising that linear functions have constant first ...

### Understanding compound interest

In this lesson students learn how compound interest works. They explore the difference between simple interest and compound interest, apply compund interest to saving scenarios and calculate the outcomes from different deposit plans with compund interest applied. They then go on to consider the impact of compound interest ...

### MathXplosion, Ep 15: How many times can a sheet of paper be folded?

Why can a regular sheet of paper be folded only about six times? By folding a sheet of paper in half, over and over, the number of layers and the thickness of the paper doesn’t just double, they increase exponentially. Find out how many times a sheet of paper can actually be folded!

### reSolve: Real World Algebra: Exponential Functions

This sequence of two lessons explores exponential functions as seen in the real world, linking the representations of function rules, graphs and tables of values. Students consider real world objects and data that can be described using exponential functions. They use simulations and modelling to investigate transformations, ...

### Growth and decay

This is a teacher resource for applications of logarithmic and exponential functions consisting of a website and a PDF with identical content. It contains examples of applications of exponential and logarithmic functions such as radioactive half-life and population growth.

### TIMES Module 22: Number and Algebra: consumer arithmetic - teacher guide

This is a 23-page guide for teachers, providing an introduction to the financial mathematics component of the number and algebra strands for years 9 and 10. A brief history of the concept of money concludes the module.

### Algebra four

This is an interactive game for two students in which they solve algebraic equations, similar to 'Connect four'. The players can choose from problems that are one- or two-step, quadratic, have distributive properties or have variables on both sides, and more than one problem type can be chosen. The length of time each player ...

### reSolve: Real World Algebra: Quadratic Functions

This sequence of three lessons explores different representations of quadratic functions, with particular emphasis on turning points in quadratic graphs. Students use images of trajectories, inscribe their own curves using Geogebra and then further explore the algebraic representation of their curves. Each lesson is outlined ...

### reSolve: Pythagoras' Theorem - Bent bamboo

This lesson challenges students to use Pythagoras' Theorem to solve a problem from an ancient Chinese text. They make physical models of the problem and use this to construct a graph. They use algebra skills associated with binomial expansions and simplification of fractions to show that the general solution given in the ...

### Desmos Graphing Calculator - Google Play app

Plot functions, create tables, add sliders and animate your graphs. Touch points of interest on the graph to show maximums, minimums and points of intersection. Type in an equation and watch the calculator solve the problem. Free when reviewed on 12/5/2015.

### 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.

### Secondary mathematics: different representations

These seven learning activities, which focus on 'representations' 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 different representations ...
