Get your students involved in applied maths that deals with real life using data .
Round 18 was a very interesting record breaking round. West Coast won a match they did not deserve too. Essendon kicked inaccurately and lost their game against Brisbane. Six teams in the final 8 have all won 12 games so far in 2016 season giving them all 48 points on the Premiership Ladder. Brent Harvey (North Melbourne) equalled Michael Tuck’s ( Hawthorn ) 426 playing record and Sam Mitchell ( Hawthorn) played his 300th game.
