Mathematics and statistics

Refreshed learning area

Refreshed mathematics and statistics learning area

The mathematics and statistics learning area has been refreshed as part of the wider changes to The New Zealand Curriculum.

We engaged widely with the education sector on developing this learning area, and we now have a final draft. There may be some final adjustments before the fully refreshed NZC is ready to be implemented from the beginning of 2027.

Supporting resources and material to help teach mathematics and statistics are also being developed and will be ready in Term 3, 2023.

The refreshed learning area can be downloaded here.
