Seminar Leader: Mr Tony Thompson BSc Dip Ed Dip T Grad Dip Ed Admin.
Tony has been teaching for over 40 years and has been a Mathematics Coordinator for 29 years.
In past years Tony has been invited to lecture on methodology at Year 12 Mathematics teacher conferences and was a current co-author of the Year 12 Haese and Haese Mathematics publications.
By covering the above topics, students will be well prepared for any trial and mid year exams. In addtion they will have completed the necessary revision for the end of year exam which has the following requirements:
At Stage 2, the SACE Board marks the 30 per cent external assessment component of all subjects. External assessment takes a range of forms, depending on the subject, including:
- written examinations
- oral examinations
Pursuant to the following:
