Abstract

This article introduces several new STEM resources that have special relevance to teaching mathematics. All resources are freely available from . Units can be taught separately or put together to make a coherent multi-year program. Year 7 and 8 topics include the mathematics of motion and of music (including conducting experiments to gather, plot, and interpret data). There is a series of five units that develop skills in modelling the real world, using contexts such as wait times for theme park rides, designing packaging, analysing statistics on risk and accidents, and vehicle cornering. Three units use coding to explore data visualisation, patterns in nature, and simulating games. These hi..
