Maths Methods Workshops

We are offering an intensive 2 hour workshop for Maths Methods students presented by an experienced Maths Methods teacher. 

The focus is on topics that Year 11 and year 12 students find difficult and are currently being studied at school in Year 11. Year 12 students may wish to revisit these areas so that they are fully understood and mastered.

Students will 

  • be provided with a booklet of notes and worked examples

  • practice skills in an interactive way by completing problems and asking questions.

  • consolidate the skills taught at school and learn a different strategy without relying on their calculator.

Workshop 1

Sketching Power Functions and Circles

(Taught at school in Term 2)

Students will learn how to sketch power functions including the hyperbola, the truncus and the square root graph. They will also be taught in detail how to accurately sketch circles and semicircles.

 

Students will learn some fail proof methods and will walk away with the confidence to accurately sketch any of these graphs without relying on a CAS calculator.
