This term students in Miss Marley’s Year 10 Advanced Maths class were given the task of analysing raw data regarding cotton exports and production and creating a report based on these statistics. A big thank you must go to the Maths Department for incorporating the Archibull Prize into their unit this Semester and for modifying the assessment task to include cotton!
