Numeracy Project PLD

The Numeracy Development Projects (NDP) were a collection of Ministry-funded, in-school professional learning and development initiatives implemented in New Zealand schools between 2000 and 2009. The goal of the NDP was to improve student performance in mathematics through improving the professional capability of teachers. The NDP knowledge and strategy frameworks (the Number Framework) strongly influenced the development of the mathematics and statistics learning area of the New Zealand Curriculum, and in particular the number and algebra strand.
