# Achievement objective M8-5

In a range of meaningful contexts, students will be engaged in thinking mathematically and statistically. They will solve problems and model situations that require them to:

• develop network diagrams to find optimal solutions, including critical paths.

## Indicators

• Uses network diagrams to find optimal solutions, including critical paths.
• Uses critical path analysis to schedule the tasks in a project to meet particular constraints.
• Constructs network diagrams for critical path analysis from precedence tables.
• Uses critical path analysis to establish the tasks on the critical path, the critical events.
• Uses critical path analysis to find the float times for activities that are not on the critical path.
• Makes links with networks M7-5.
• See key mathematical ideas on NZmaths.

## Possible context elaborations

• Critical paths:
• Estimates of times to schedule tasks.
• Decide on priority of events.
• Project management

## Assessment for qualifications

NCEA achievement standards at levels 1, 2 and 3 have been aligned to the New Zealand Curriculum. Please ensure that you are using the correct version of the standards by going to the NZQA website.

The NZQA subject-specific resources pages are very helpful. From there, you can find all the achievement standards and links to assessment resources, both internal and external.

The following achievement standard(s) could assess learning outcomes from this AO:
