Research a particular issue or topic that is relevant to the teaching and learning of mathematics in the senior secondary school. • Introduction (~100 words) • Clear description of the topic or issue(~200 words) • Relevance of the issue discussed in relation to senior secondary students(~200 words) • Reference to personal experiences to justify choice of the issue(~150 words) • Reference made to the literature to support claims and advice to teachers – at least 8 appropriate references(~1200 words) • practical advice for teachers including teaching ideas(~400 words) • Summaries provided of relevant sources(~250 words) The issue I have chosen is “reduction in students taking the higher mathematics that involves calculus”. (I’ve attached a sample assignment, we analyzed this in the class just for the structure of the essay, the issue on the sample is mathematics anxiety, writer can quickly have a look at it for the structure of essay, all the dot points above are very clearly written in this sample, only issue was the topic was not that relevant for senior secondary math students and conclusion was not that good). Senior secondary school in Australia is grade 11 and 12. (We are doing master of teaching course, teaching high school math). I have attached an article ‘Calculus-based mathematics: An Australian endangered species? ´We have chosen my research topic based on this article, so please read this before you start. For the literature review part we have to use at least 8, could you please use more recent math journal articles , also the references from the journal article I’ve attached). Please read the marking rubric before you start. For the reference to personal experience part, writer can make up some things. Maybe say on my prac, I found this is a common issue or something like that. (see sample assignment ) If We found any useful practical advices I will email the writer.
