This resource was originally developed  as a CD-ROM by the Victorian Board of Studies and Cambridge University Press, to create a digital  copy of VCE Mathematics Common Assessment Task (CAT)  Investigative Project and Challenging Problem materials (1989 – 1999), and to provide illustrative examples of how these could be drawn on to assist teachers to devise their own tasks for school assessed cousrework (SACs). It has now been made available in on-line format so that teachers can continue to access and use these materials. 

VCE Mathematics school assessed coursework tasks are to be devised  to meet the requirements of the VCE Mathematics study design (2016 – 2020). Teachers should also refer to  the VCAA Advice for Teachers  which can be accessed from the relevant VCE Mathematics study page.
