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.

Blended Learning (sometimes called ‘hybrid’ learning) refers to the combination of online
or digital learning and learning face-to-face with educators in a manner that leads to better learning outcomes. The online component can be accessed on or off campus and either inside or outside scheduled lesson time, but the face-to-face interactions with educators usually occur on campus (digital interactions between people are also possible, as demonstrated during COVID 19 shutdowns, but they are not blended learning).
