Adapting to the VCE

Its 2016 and I have a new challenge, a new position in a different Australian state. For the last 8 years I have been working in WA. In 2015, WA introduced their versions of the Australian Curriculum in Year 11 Mathematics and the Year 12 follows this year.  These WACE courses are essentially a subset of the Australian Curriculum and so it has been straight forward to select and sequence the activities to fit the new courses.

Now I am in Geelong, Victoria with so much to learn about how things are done, both systemically across the state as well as locally within my new school. My intention  is to document my experiences using  the ClassPad activities in my new context to map where and how the resources may be used in teaching the VCE. I am starting at the beginning of the year and my students have had a two week orientation at the end of the previous year to get started.
