The Specialist Maths class has just finished work on Quadratic Iteration which is part of the Polynomial topic. Dr Brett Wilkinson's workshop reinforced concepts covered in class.
In the task students had to predict how manipulating different features of an apple tree would affect yield. The workshop demonstrated how different disciplines of science and maths can work together to explain natural phenomena in a practical context.
