Prior to British settlement, more than 500 Indigenous nations inhabited the Australian continent, approximately 750,000 people in total. (1). Their cultures had developed over 60,000 years, making Indigenous Australians the custodians of the world’s most ancient living culture. Each group lived in close relationship with the land and had custody over their own traditional country.

Regulatory cards Why do maths students need self-regulation? Alan Schoenfeld in a seminal chapter from 1987 (What’s all the fuss about metacognition?) discussed his observations of how undergraduate students solved problems. More than half, when faced with a non-standard problem outside a familiar context, followed the path illustrated in diagram 1. A day in the life of a convict Some hapless individuals experienced the full horrors of convict transportation. It was no wonder that some, like Anderson, endured periods of mental instability. Navy seaman and thief Charles ‘Bony’ Anderson arrived in Sydney from Devonshire in 1834, aged 24. He was heavily tattooed, with designs of a mermaid, anchor, buoy, cottage, flag, heart, crucifix, sun, moon and seven stars, Adam and Eve, serpent and tree. In coming years he was frequently flogged, for mutinous conduct, striking fellow prisoners, assaulting an overseer and neglect of work.

What the flip? Exploring technologies to support a flipped classroom by @katessoper A flipped classroom is one where the lectures become the homework and the traditional homework tasks take place in the lesson time. This enables students to attend sessions with an understanding of the subject and to conceptualise and build upon it through doing exercises in class, with you, as the tutor, on hand to answer questions and explore the topic in more detail. This moves the tutor from the “sage on the stage, to the guide on the side” (King, 1993).

Children Programs Un-Birthday Party – PROGRAM FULL -School Age Friday, February 19, 2016 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm Pythagoras’ Comma In Problem 1 (Six Notes all Nice Ratios ) we explored a six point scale : shortest length to double that, with four lengths in between. In this problem the scale now has 12 points : shortest to double, with ten lengths in between. We are going to look for a closed and complete scale. The question is this : If we work in fractions, where 1 is the lowest note and 1/2 is the highest, what would the other notes need to be so that intervals between any pair of notes were fractions from elsewhere in the set? For example if the set included the fractions 2/3, 3/4 and 8/9, then the lengths 8/9 and 3/4 themselves make an interval of 2/3 , and 2/3 is in the set. Here's one way people tried to find a suitable set : Using an understanding that 1:2 and 2:3 were good ratios, they started with a length and then kept reducing it to 2/3 of itself.
