Maths Week continues again this year.
It is being held from Monday August 10th until Friday August 14th.
Last year there were over 164,545 students registered throughout New Zealand. This year we are confident there will be more!
Maths Week is written for all students from Year 1 through to Year 11.
The type of mathematics written in Maths Week is aimed particularly at applying the subject in a bright attractive way to all sorts of things which are relevant to student’s lives. It is written to appeal to students and is related to the curriculum with a different emphasis.
The Challenge Section will have the popular Daily Dollar Questions and the Survivor Series Challenges for all Levels of students.
This year the interactive and popular “Who wants to be a Maths Millionaire?” continues.
This has been very well received by students and teachers in the past and this year it is fully interactive.
Some of “Maths Millionaire” challenges will be on themes. The themes include the Great Pyramids, Songs, Shapes, Logic, famous mathematicians, …
There will be two Maths Millionaire challenges each day. One for senior students and one for junior students.
This year a new section has been added. This is an interactive section on rail trips throughout New Zealand. There will be one trip each day.
All the Challenges are written in Word and in PDF form for easy access by students and Teachers. Answers will be provided for Teachers along with suggestions as to how the challenges can be worked. Teachers should register early on www.mathsweek.org.nz. to gain these.
The very popular Games Section will be updated but similar to last year.
These will be interactive.
