Making Assessment Judgements in Mathematics and Statistics
NZQA National Assessment Moderators for Mathematics and Statistics can be contracted to provide workshops to teachers to increase assessor confidence in making assessor judgements consistent with the national standard for the internally assessed NCEA standards.
The 2016 International Mathematical Modeling Challenge IM2C - An Announcement and an Invitation March 16, 2016 – May 9, 2016 Rationale: The purpose of the IM2C is to promote the teaching of mathematical modeling and applications at all educational levels for all students. It is based on the firm belief that students and teachers need to experience the power of mathematics to help better understand, analyze and solve real world problems outside of mathematics itself – and to do so in realistic contexts. The Challenge has been established in the spirit of promoting educational change. More Information
