This outreach programme engages children's interest in maths and stats in rural Canterbury and West Coast communities. It provides rich and innovative maths activities based on the New Zealand Curriculum using Dragonistics data cards. The programme is supported by the New Zealand Government's Unlocking Curious Minds fund.

See Dr Nic's Blog post and the Curious Minds story on the Rich Maths visits.

The events were held at schools and were designed for up to 60 Year 3-8 students and their teachers. The rich activities are suitable for students working at any curriculum level.

The Statistics Learning Centre team run the events. Support is provided to empower teachers to provide similar learning experiences for their students.    More details of the events.

To help teachers support teachers, we set up the NZRichMaths Facebook group. Teachers can share their ideas and experiences, ask questions of their collegues and support each other through the group. While initially focussed on schools involved in the Rich Maths events, we are happy for any New Zealand teachers to join the group.
