    Hi everybody
    over the last year we have been doing 2 internal assessments but we had absolutely no clue about how to write them, i got all the maths but apparently i was missing something since i got 12 out of 20 in both the internals... Have your teachers ever given you any kind of advice?
    Any help will be useful)))

    Well what my teacher was that it's not enough to write it out in a "answer-the-question" kind of format; it's gotta be a report, all flowing and stuff, with explanations and all. Think of a science lab report, but for math... sort of like that.

    Use the right vernacular (e.g. "we have that" "therefore" "given that" etc.). It has to be clearly explained - accessible to anyone your age who hasn't studied the topic. Don't approach it in a linear, question 1 - question 2 - question 3 sort of way; make sure you explain each step and introduce each new aspect of the investigation.

    The correct method of laying out maths:

    Proposition
    (lemmas if applicable)
    Proof
    Corollary

    etc
