Preparing to Teach the Class of 2020

A/Prof Katherine Seaton and Dr Anthony Morphett have written an article that will appear in the March issue of the AustMS Gazette. It is being posted here early in advance of the start of next academic year, as it is relevant for those preparing to teach first-year mathematics.

The abstract is as follows:

When the high school graduates of 2020 arrive in our first year maths courses in 2021 (a gap year not really being on the cards), what should we expect? All Australian students experienced some level of disruption to their studies in 2020 due to COVID-19, though the impact of the pandemic was greatest in Victoria. This note summarises what we see as the most relevant changes to senior secondary mathematics in 2020 for Australian tertiary mathematics educators.
