Year 7 Maths – Applying Algebra

Ever stopped to think about the mathematical intricacies hidden within everyday tasks? From the mundane to the monumental, algebra often lurks behind the scenes, helping us make sense of the world around us. Year 7 Maths students are diving deep into this fascinating realm during their classes.

In the video, we take a closer look at something as seemingly simple as mowing a lawn. Beyond the whirring blades and the scent of freshly cut grass, lies a world of calculations waiting to be explored. Deputy Principal Nathan Reynolds chats with Matt, our school Maintenance Officer, to unravel the algebraic secrets of lawn mowing. Together, they’ll delve into the various scenarios where algebra comes into play, from calculating the area of the lawn to determining the optimal mowing conditions for efficiency.

Our Year 7 Maths students have been tasked with identifying and exploring similar scenarios, shedding light on the practical applications of algebra in everyday life.

Stay tuned for further videos and updates as our students share their findings and formulas.

It is with immense pride that we congratulate our students for their remarkable partnership with Clean Up for the Hatchlings initiative in the endeavour to clean up Bulcock Beach over the weekend. Their dedication to environmental stewardship and community engagement shines brightly as they work towards the preservation of our precious coastal ecosystems. 

Teaming up with Clean Up for the Hatchlings, our students have exemplified the spirit of service and environmental consciousness. Through their collaborative efforts, they have not only cleaned up debris and litter but have also raised awareness about the importance of maintaining the cleanliness and sustainability of our coastal environments. 

Students’ commitment to this cause is not merely about picking up trash but about fostering a culture of responsibility and care for our natural surroundings. By actively participating in initiatives like these, our students are not just cleaning up beaches; they are nurturing a deeper sense of connection to nature and inspiring others to do the same. 

Volunteering offers students a rich and immersive learning environment where they can develop a wide range of skills essential for success in the workplace. From communication and teamwork to leadership and problem-solving, the experiences gained through volunteering empower students to thrive in diverse professional settings and make meaningful contributions to their communities
