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.
