Maths teachers converge in Gladstone, gain real-world examples
Published on 24 May, 2013
Thirty-five secondary school maths teachers recently converged in Gladstone to gain insights on the use of mathematics for project management.
CQUniversity project management specialist Richard Egelstaff discussed the use of mathematics at various stages of the project lifecycle, including initiation, planning, scheduling, budgeting and assessing risk.
The twilight professional development session was facilitated by Ruth Kinslow from the Queensland Centre for Professional Development in recognition that teachers are often challenged to explain the application of classroom maths in the real world.
