This unit uses the context of generosity to introduce a need to have a fractional way of thinking about something.

It develops a way of thinking about fractions – the for-every idea – that is the elusive multiplicative model.

### Cup Snakes – Describing Linear Change

A video introduction presents the mathematics of cup snakes, a hands on phenomena involving additive change that gives rise to a way to think about linear growth. Modeling this phenomena theoretically, with the help of two cups, and through data, with the help of many, many cups, these videos give rise to some of the big ideas around developing and using linear algebraic models to describe additive bi-variate change. These ideas are then unpacked in the accompanying ‘chapter replacement’ booklet.

The students begin by ‘learning’ how to sail a boat and then engage with various aspects of sailing and as a result learn about the fundamental trigonometric ratios. The unit comes with pre-made 9860 Geometry files that enable the students to sail virtual boats, collect data on their sailing and through this learn about trigonometric ratios. The unit includes traditional learning and problems as well as some not so traditional learning.

### Optimisation (9860)

When studying quadratic functions/calculus, do too many of your students find ‘optimisation questions’ hard? Have you ever wondered why? The booklet you can download here is the unit of work that supports the ideas presented in a number of workshops during 2011 and 2012 that outlined why students find the ideas hard. Basically, traditional teaching-and-doing approaches fail to focus on what is really happening: the measurement on one dimension and the subsequent calculation of other dimensions. Also, algebraic simplification turns out to be the devil – the patterns in the symbols are lost and so generalisation is not ‘seen’! The approach in the booklet supports the idea of each student developing a calculation and then comparing and contrasting to it other’s calculations – it is in this that the symbolic patterns appear and the generalisation literally reveals itself.

### Video solutions to the 2016 VCE MM CAS Exam (feat. efficient Classpad use) – Section B – Q3 & Q4.
