ab: Summary: A renovation of school buildings at Rosetta High School, in the
northern suburbs of Hobart, Tasmania, has provided an opportunity for
students to use a real life context to develop and apply mathematical
understanding. This has led to students achieving educational outcomes
for the Essential Learnings (ELs) curriculum that affirm the role of
mathematics as a critical element of education and its potential for
assisting with the development of learning outcomes across the
curriculum. The mathematics project described here illustrates that
desired outcomes for other ELs can be facilitated by exploring
mathematical concepts in a real life context. In this case, outcomes
were also planned for the social responsibility key element outcome
"understanding the past and creating preferred futures". (ERIC)
