Monday 8 to Friday 12 August.
This year is the 25th anniversary of Maths Week.
To mark the occasion, we are having a “Design a Maths Week Logo” competition for all students in Years 1 – 11.
Entries will be made on the Maths Week website during Maths Week.
There will be four year level prizes. Supplementary prizes may also be awarded. For more information, go to https://www.mathsweek.co.nz
Maths Week material is available free, on-line, to teachers, students and the public.
Teachers who register for Maths Week also have access to answers and other information. Mathsweek materials will be available to those that register from Monday 25 July.
Maths Week is designed to
- encourage students’ interest in mathematics and statistics
- 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
- show the pleasure that mathematics can provide and some of the everyday places where it can be used
- give teachers material that can provide extension.
Mathsweek is made possible through funding from the Ministry of Education
Last year, 278 000 students and 6901 teachers throughout New Zealand registered for Maths Week.
