Numeracy Project teaching resources

Thanks for visiting NZMaths.
We are preparing to close this site by the end of August 2024. Maths content is still being migrated onto Tāhūrangi, and we will be progressively making enhancements to Tāhūrangi to improve the findability and presentation of content.

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.
