NZAMT17 National Mathematics and Statistics Conference
Maths Week is a major event that is held each year, having been first held in 1998. Sponsored by the Ministry of Education and the New Zealand Association of Mathematics Teachers, a number of resources are written and made available to teachers and students in Years 1 – 11.
The aims of Maths Week are:
to encourage students’ interest in mathematics and statistics
to give teachers resources that they can use in the classroom, particularly material that requires some research and which may not be readily available to them, or that can be used electronically in class
to show the pleasure that mathematics can provide and some of the everyday places where mathematics and statistics can be used
to give teachers material that can provide extension.
Maths Week 2022 will be held between Monday 8 August and Friday 12 August.
More information, including details of the registration process, will be made available in mid-2022.
Resources from recent Teacher Only Days / Jumbo days
As many teachers were unable to attend Jumbo Days during the last round of Teacher Only Days, NZAMT has created some resources which may help give you more information on the proposed new Level 1 Achievement Standards and how they will work.
Thanks must go to Liz Sneddon for the work she has put in to the preparation of information which she freely shares with NZ teachers.
Her website with videos and useful links discuss numeracy, and the statistics internal and external assessment
He has also created a padlet page which will sort of form a Q and A where you can post questions or comment on questions already there.
We don't have all the answers but will try and help where we can.
