trccRegional workshops for statistics

These workshops, designed and presented by Cognition Education, provide a fresh look at learning for students in Year 13 statistics. Focusing on NZC objectives and the PPDAQ cycle, each workshop is set in an engaging context. Teachers will be prepared for integrating student research into their learning sequences and supporting students in report writing. Each workshop provides the basis for a complete teaching unit. iNZight software will be used, and teachers should download the latest version from Census at School before the workshops. A software update is expected in Term 1, 2014.

Mathematics Trust Board

The Mathematics Trust Board seeks applications for to provide a substantial teaching unit.  The goal of these units will be to encourage students to think mathematically and become confident with the mathematics they are using.  The units will be sufficiently varied and multi-facetted to sustain activities for a week’s teaching.  It is anticipated the unit of work will include:

  1. An overview
  2. Description of the mathematics explored
  3. Resources needed (equipment, web links etc.)
  4. Teaching sequence.

See NZMaths for examples of units of work at the junior level
