91260 Maths 2.5: Networks - 2 credits

Almost definitely as exciting as surfing with dolphins next to Nugget Point Lighthouse

Sorry, this has sold out. Leave your details below and we’ll let you know when more become available.

In this gold nugget (Point Lighthouse) of an achievement standard, you will be given a network. Networks are groups of interconnected things. For example, a group of towns connected by roads or a group of computers connected with wires. (Mildly fun fact: the word ‘internet’ comes from the words ‘interconnected network’.)

For your exam, you will need to answer three types of questions related to a network:

(1) How do you find the shortest path between two points?
(2) What is the longest and/or shortest way to connect every point together?
(3) Is it possible to go to every point and travel every path, without travelling down the same path twice?

Skills you'll learn:

  The shortest path

  Network traversability

  Spanning trees
