Title: A survey of High School Mathematics curricula and First Year University Mathematics Units, COVID Plus
Venue: online via Zoom: https://unimelb.zoom.us/j/787759102 Pass code: 580327
Australia implemented a common Year 12 mathematics curriculum in 2016. Nonetheless, differences still exist in the state curricula. We survey the mathematics curricula across Australia in the different states and compare them for similarity and differences. We further survey the first year mathematics units at universities in Australia, their respective pre-requisites and study pathways, with a focus on the G08 universities.
We also consider the effects of COVID to the teaching and external examinations at Year 12. Finally, we investigate the various concessions the G08 universities have made to entry standards, and their implications for pre-requisite knowledge.
Note: This seminar is likely to be of interest to those teaching first-year mathematics & statistics in 2021 as it includes a summary of changes to school mathematics teaching in 2020 due to COVID.
