Algorithms: Year 10 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 10 is for the topic of Algorithms. Students apply algorithmic thinking to spatial scenarios, drawing upon their knowledge and skills in this area. The value for students is to allow them to mathematically investigate a spatial problem and to design and test an approach to solve the problem. By trialling different approaches, including using dynamic geometric software, students refine and hone the process to achieve solutions efficiently.
