## Introduction

Workshop 9 focused on discussing the importance of connections in the teaching and learning of mathematics. The workshop looked at the different connections teachers might make in their classroom. The workshop also focused on area and volume in terms of the nets of solids, the trapezoidal rule and integral calculus. If you missed workshop 9 or want to go back over some of the activities done on the day, you’ll find videos of the full workshop and all the resources used or references during the workshop below.
