Level 10, VCE
Copy Ed

This set of four video lessons are designed to demonstrate how CAS (Mathematica) can be used to introduce and explore complex mathematical ideas. Activities will be designed in such a way that will encourage student-centred learning. Sample activities and corresponding Mathematica files will be demonstrated. Participants write and share their own resources as part the course. Each video is approx 60 minutes in duration.

  • Session 1. Mathematica as an inquiry tool
  • Session 2. Designing your own Mathematica activity that encourages deep learning - a how to guide
  • Session 3. Examples of deep learning activities that you can bring back to your own classroom
  • Session 4. Presentations of educator produced lessons

Presented by Jen Palisse and Luke Bohni - John Monash Science School
