Maths Week 2013

Maths Week 2013

Maths Week 2013.

Maths Week continues again this year but with a number of changes.

It is being held from Monday August 12th until Sunday August 18th.

 We are pleased to have the Ministry of Education’s support and financial backing again this year. However the costs involved with the interacting computer programs and the huge memory usage of the auctions have made it impossible for the New Zealand Association of Mathematics Teachers to continue as in the past with the level of funding that was required.
