Statement of Inquiry Decision making can be improved by using a model to represent relationships. Geometric representations of place and space help us to understand our world Applying our knowledge of pattern when studying systems allows us to predict Logic is a powerful tool for justifying what we discover through measurement and observation Establishing patterns in the natural world can help us to understand relationships

Statement of Inquiry Logic is a powerful tool for justifying what we discover through measurement and observation. Appreciating the patterns found through exploring various forms and representations of the Pascal’s triangle. Describing patterns and making generalisations helps to simplify the process in making predictions. Understanding form and shape enhances creativity. Patterns can be generalised when we extend ideas and examine form
