Mathematical modelling (Measurement): Year 10 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 10 is for the topic of Mathematical modelling. Students use mathematics in a range of contexts for problem-solving and modelling practical situations. These include drawing plans and elevations to scale, using ratio and proportion when making a prototype, and using estimation. Some of their enquiry may be investigated with hands-on materials and also digital software programs.
