# Level 5 rich learning activities

This collection of learning activities has been developed to support teachers of year 9 and 10 students. The activities are designed to provide engaging contexts in which to explore the achievement objectives from Level 5 of the NZC. The activities themselves do not represent a complete coverage of learning at this level. Rather they provide an opportunity to apply the mathematics learned in previous lessons.  The activities are intended to reflect the mulit-level nature of activities that students will encounter in NCEA internal assessment activities and the range of approaches that make up a differentiated classroom.
