These cross-curricular theme units link Matariki, the Māori new year, to the different strands of mathematics (note that Matariki is celebrated in late May or early June; check online for dates for each year):

These four cross-strand units are designed to help you get to know what your class can already do in maths. They are designed to help you get to know a new class at the start of the year, but could be used at any time:
