Mathsweek 2021

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 2021 will be held between Monday 9 August and Friday 13 August.

Presently, schools are preparing for 2021. Schools may wish to include Maths Week in their planning.

More information will be made available in mid-2021.

Kinetic Kiwi Competition

The KineticKiwi competition is a platform for you to explore and showcase your passion for learning by creating a video about a science, mathematics, technology or social science topic you’ve learnt about at school.

You can decide what you want to make; maybe you want to show everyone how that enzymes topic isn’t as difficult as they think it is, or perhaps you have some tips that make kinematics problems less scary —any of your contributions can help others!
