Teachers Supporting Teachers P – Year 10 – Thur 3 Nov 7pm – Measurement and the Cartesian Plane

Measurement and the Cartesian Plane

A presentation intended to empower the learning of Perimeter, Area, Surface Area, Volume and graphing on the Cartesian Plane from Prep to Year 10 and Beyond. (Please have 1 centimetre grid paper, a ruler and a geometry set on hand.)
Who is Joe Ousby?
Joe has taught Mathematics from Year 7 to year 12 for over 40 years in NSW, Singapore and Queensland. In that time he has cooked octagonal cakes, collected thousands of 1 litre milk cartons, ridden lifts with his students on sets of bathroom scales, submerged himself in 44 gallon drums of water and handed out reams and reams of graph paper in service of his students understanding and seeing value in what they are learning. Joe currently tutors students in Specialist Mathematics and Mathematical Methods. He am committed that we deliver on our promise to enrich the lives of those we teach.

What support do you need for implementation of AC9? QAMT invites your application to be part of a reference group for AC9.

Implementation of the revised P-10 Australian Curriculum: Mathematics (AC9) could start in 2023, and QAMT wants to identify the areas of the curriculum (content and pedagogies), teachers require additional support. We are looking for Math educators with an interest in curriculum and timely professional development to be part of a small reference group to advise the executive on the support our members need for implementation of the revised Australian Curriculum. You do not need to be a school leader, Senior/Lead/HAT teacher to participate, just passionate with a willingness to collaborate.

For more information and to express your interest, please download and return the EOI below.

Your feedback about the P-10 Australian Curriculum Review

Teachers from around the State participated in five online professional conversation about the changes proposed in the P-10 Australian Curriculum Review. The feedback from these sessions were collated and submitted to ACARA.

To read the response please click here.

Recording/resources shared though the review process can be found here:

Session 2: Review of the CORE CONCEPTS: what is essential for students to learn.  Download the Overview of the Core Concepts PDF here.

Session 1: The REVIEW PROCESS & PROPOSED CHANGES – Rachael Whitney-Smith, Lead for the Mathematics review at ACARA and members of her team. Download Slides here

 

 

Please note that responses were based on the feedback from these sessions and care was taken to be solutions focused and represent the diverse views presented. Individuals were also directed to provide individual feedback through the ACARA survey.

 

One of the QAMT’s aims is advocacy for our members – this is just one of the ways we  help your voice be heard.
