The Academic Discovery Modules ( ADM ) offered in Years 1 & 2 aim to help Josephians inquire about the world or the self through a process guided by teachers . This process enables students to adopt lenses of particular disciplines in order to answer essential questions that interest them .
The Year 2 Math Academic Module on “ Building your dream home ” can seem like an overwhelming experience . However , it aims to guide students on an inquiry into ratio , scales and maps and the mathematics behind architectural drawing and eventually building their dream home . The students learned to use Google SketchUp to create a model of their dream house .
