Maths Week/Wiki Pāngarau 2024

Monday 12 August – Friday 16 August

Maths Week Sets and Resources

In previous years, Maths Week resources have been classified by levels. As from this year, they will be classified by Sets as follows.

  • Set A – primarily for Years 1 and 2.
  • Set B – primarily for Years 3 and 4.
  • Set C – primarily for Years 5 and 6.
  • Set D – primarily for Years 7 and 8.
  • Set E – primarily for Years 9, 10 and 11.

This will mean that teachers can use different resources in the same class without any reference to different levels. Not all sections have material for all sets (see details below).

Maths Week resources are either quizzes or worksheets.

  • Quizzes have short answer questions or multiple choice questions.
  • Worksheets provide mathematical activities and questions. They can be downloaded and printed by teachers

The 2024 Maths Week resources are as follows.

  • The Maths Chaser/Whai Pāngarau. Quizzes for Sets B – E, with a quiz for each day during Maths Week. An in-class activity. The quizzes can be downloaded and printed by teachers. PowerPoint versions of these quizzes are also available.
  • Maths Millionaire/Kaipāngarau Whai Rawa. Quizzes, with Years 3 – 5, Years 6 – 8, Years 9 – 11 and family divisions, and with a quiz for each day during Maths Week. The questions for each day are based on a theme. Each quiz is completed on-line. Those who answer all questions correctly can print a certificate. The quizzes have also been translated into te reo Māori.
  • Managing My Money/Whakahaeretia Aku Moni. Quizzes to support financial capability, with one quiz for Set D and five quizzes for Set E (each on a particular theme). Each quiz is completed on-line.
  • Daily Dollar/Ko te Tāra o te Rā. Worksheets at each of Sets A – E. Te Reo Māori versions of some of these worksheets have been produced. A record sheet (a Word version and a spreadsheet version) for teachers to keep a cumulative class record for this series is available with the other Daily Dollar teacher resources.
  • Survivor Series/Kia Mōrehurehu. Worksheets for in-class tasks for Sets A – E for each day during Maths Week. Each day’s tasks have a theme (the same theme for all levels).
  • The Basket of Mathematics/Te kete o te Pāngarau. Five worksheets on various mathematical topics. Primarily written for Years 9 – 11 but could be suitable for some in Years 7 and 8.
  • Super Challenge/Kua takoto te Manuka. One mathematical challenge question each day for Monday - Thursday during Maths Week. Answers are submitted on-line on the last day of Maths Week. Those who submit correct answers for the questions and the total can print a certificate. Answers and any other notes are available for teachers on the Tuesday in the week following Maths Week.
