year 12 students taught wrong hsc maths course

NSW Education Minister Rob Stokes said he is "furious" and has ordered an investigation after several students at a NSW high school discovered that they have been taught the wrong maths course since the beginning of the year, and will need to catch up in less than two months if they are to sit their HSC exam.Two year 12 students and five year 11 students at Coonamble High School in NSW's north-west were being taught the mathematics general 1 syllabus instead of the higher-level mathematics general 2 course they elected.

why more hsc students are opting for lower-level maths

Students who opt for the general mathematics course in the HSC are being rewarded with up to 6.5 marks more than those who study the 2-unit advanced maths course, creating a "loophole" that is pushing high-achieving students into the less challenging subject.The advantage, created by the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) scaling system, ranged from 5.3 and 6.5 scaled marks or the equivalent of at least 1.3 ATAR points between 2009 and 2013, according to a new report by the NSW Department of Education's Centre for Education Statistics and Evaluation (CESE).What happened on flight QF72?Video duration05:06Previous slideNext slideVideo duration02:18Could you do HSC maths?

High school students across the country have escaped the classroom to showcase their science, maths and engineering smarts. From bionic hands to Mars rovers - nothing is off limits for the talented Year 9 and 10 students taking part in this week’s national Science and Engineering Challenge.The program, run by the University of Newcastle, has seen 1200 NSW students put through their paces at Homebush in Sydney.Nishika Sharma and her team from Holy Spirit College in Lakemba were tasked with building a bionic hand using straws, pieces of string and a rubber glove.“Basically you have to work out how to construct the hand and then how to be able to put it together so it’s able to pick things up,” the Year 10 Student told SBS World News.The program is sponsored by the New South Wales government

thousands of year 11 students to sit new critical thinking test

About 7000 year 11 students will sit a new critical thinking exam this year, which has been developed as universities and employers stress jobs of the future will require more than the traditional subjects taught in the Higher School Certificate.The optional 90-minute online test includes 60 questions that assess logical reasoning and analytical reasoning skills, and students get a detailed report on how they performed in relation to their peers and the areas they need to improve.

jee qualified boy given six marks in class xii physics by bihar board

In what appears to be a classic case of making a mockery of the entire education system in the State, the Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) has not only failed students who have qualified in the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Mains but given them 3 or 6 marks in Physics and Chemistry.These students, who appeared for Bihar Intermediate (also called Class XIIth) exams were seething with rage over callous attitude of officials of BSEB, which conducts the examination.Anuj Kumar was one of the 500 Intermediate students protesting in front of the BSEB office here. He had a genuine grievance. He has qualified the JEE (Mains) and appeared for JEE (Advanced). Anuj hoped if not the IITs, he would get admission in at least the NITs. But lo and behold, the boy who scored 85 in JEE (Mains), has b

wrong to term non-hindi languages as regional: gulzar

It was wrong to term non-Hindi languages as regional and Tamil, Gujarati, Marathi, Bengali and others were also national languages, noted poet and lyricist Gulzar today said."It is wrong to term non-Hindi languages as regional. They are major languages of the country. Tamil is a classical language, and also a major language. And so are Gujarati, Marathi, Bengali and others," he told PTI.He was speaking on the sidelines of Bengaluru Poetry Festival 2017, organised by 'Atta Galatta', a bookstore here.The Padma Bhushan awardee also pitched for introduction of literary works including those of Kalidasain the syllabus of Indian colleges along with English literary works."If in colleges, works like "Paradise Lost" can be taught, why cannot Kalidasa, Yudhistir and Draupadi be taught?

cursive is making a comeback: test your handwriting skills

Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Cursive writing is looping back into style in schools across the country after a generation of students who know only keyboarding, texting and printing out their words longhand.Alabama and Louisiana passed laws in 2016 mandating cursive proficiency in public schools, the latest of 14 states that require cursive. And last fall, the 1.1 million-student New York City schools, the nation's largest public school system, encouraged the teaching of cursive to students, generally in the third grade."It's definitely not necessary but I think it's, like, cool to have it," said Emily Ma, a 17-year-old senior at New York City's academically rigorous Stuyvesant High School who was never taught cursive in school and had to learn it on her own.Quiz: See If You Remember How to Wri

To make both ends meet, Deepak these days teaches yoga, but the earning is not enough. “The only way out to get rid of poverty is through education. I had heard of Super 30 and Anand Sir. It was a dream which has now been filfilled by my son,” he said, trying to control his emotions.Another student Arbaz Alam was equally ecstatic. His father sel

poor kids in poor schools do worse, new report finds

New analysis of international testing of Australian students shows the gap between the richest and poorest children has barely closed over the past 15 years. Poor Australian students are about three years behind in their schooling compared with their richer peers.A new analysis of results from two international maths and science tests finds the gap between advantaged and disadvantaged students has barely narrowed over the past 15 years.Education Minister Simon Birmingham, who is in the midst of negotiating a new school funding deal with the states and territories, says the warning signs in the results make it clear money has to be spread around properly based on need.The analysis shows socio-economic factors, teachers and school environments make a big difference to student achievement.Rel

But a new research article, published in Frontiers in Education shows using fingers may be a much more important part of maths learning than previously thought.

hiding naplan results educates no one

It's hard to find defenders of the My School website, which allows people to compare schools' literacy and numeracy test results. Teachers, on the whole, loathe it. And while most parents I know say they look at the site, they also add they would never use it to select a school for their children.Nonetheless, last year, when The Canberra Times stopped publishing "league tables" that ranked schools by their NAPLAN test results, we received more than a few complaints from parents who wanted them.

is earning an undergraduate degree in hr the best way to prepare for an hr caree

 More employers are seeking HR candidates with degrees in HR than any other major.As an HR educator at a university, I often receive inquiries from prospective students about their career prospects in human resources. During these conversations, I share stories about the rewards and challenges of our profession and discuss the best way to break into the field. Although HR draws from a number of disciplines, including psychology, business, education and other social sciences, several studies show that employers especially value job seekers who graduate from HR-specific degree programs.There is evidence that the gap between what is being taught at the college level and what HR practitioners are seeking from students entering the field has narrowed significantly since SHRM began its original

why hannah gadsby is retiring from comedy after 'nanette'

Hannah Gadsby is telling a story about stealing the keys to her father's study at the school she attended as a girl, Smithton High, in remote north-west Tasmania. He taught maths in their small town. "Yeah. He taught me, he failed me," Gadsby deadpans.It could be a script for one of the stand-up routines that made her the most celebrated comedian at this year's Melbourne International Comedy Festival. But the point of the story is something beyond performance. Not so long ago, Gadsby was finally diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD.
