Extending students...

As discussed last week, competitions such as the Maths Talent Quest can be a fantastic way to extend students and allow them to explore their passion from a mathematical perspective.
But how are these entries assessed???
 
Maths Talent Quest entries are judged using a rubric.
 
The rubric outlines the criteria used across four areas:
  • Communication
  • Understanding
  • Ideas & Resources
  • Presentation
Even if you are not able to enter a MTQ competition - the rubric is a great place to start if you are considering evaluation of a maths investigation.
 
There are many other resources available through the Mathematical Association of Victoria and the Maths Talent Quest websites.
 
Best wishes with any maths investigation projects you are undertaking!
