Maths Week 2024 – including an event for teachers and home educators

Maths Week 2024 will be held between Monday 12 August and Friday 16 August.

This year, an event is being held for teachers and home educators – to submit an idea to promote Maths Week. Prizes are on offer. For details, go to https://www.mathsweek.co.nz/forteachers/

Maths Week provides resources for teachers and students to support the mathematics and statistics curriculum. Last year, 5555 teachers and 248 900 students throughout New Zealand registered for Maths Week.

Maths Week material is available free and on-line from the Maths Week website, to teachers, students and the public.

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 it can be used
  • to give teachers material that can provide extension.

Maths Week resources are written in five levels for all students from Year 1 through to Year 11. The classification system has been changed from this year from levels to sets; for details go to https://www.mathsweek.co.nz/forteachers/maths-week-levels-and-resources

To find more about the Maths Week levels and resources (including other aspects that are new for 2024), go to

Teachers who register for Maths Week also have access to answers to questions for the quizzes, and the answers and other notes for the worksheets. They will have access to this material for the worksheets from Monday 29 July to enable them to familiarise themselves with the material before Maths Week starts.

The Ministry of Education supports and provides financial backing for Maths Week.

We look forward to receiving your registration.
