    Year 12/13 Experiments workshop 18 October, 1 November, 8 November
    The Level 7/8 Experiments Course is one of a series designed for middle leaders and teachers of mathematics and statistics with a focus on conducting experiments to investigate a situation. Participants will be engaging in teaching and learning activities to get a deeper understanding on the new material that is in year 12 and 13 experiments. If you are wanting to teach experiments in year 13 then this is the course for you. It covers both year 12 and 13 material and helps to give a good understanding of the requirements at both levels as well as the underpinning concepts of experiments. Enrol at: Experiements workshop

    Updates NZQA
    S2012/022 List of Approved Subjects for University Entrance: Mathematics and Statistics, Science, and Technology
    ...
    Teachers have been telling us that it is very hard to navigate in the landscape of new curriculum materials, achievement standards, exemplars, teaching resources and so on. Because everything is so scattered, it Is often almost impossible to find what you need.
    To overcome this Tracey Meek and Lindsay Smith have put together a CensusAtSchool resource which starts with each achievement standard and then links to all relevant resources that we know about. We provide a summary of resources for each Achievement Standard providing links to NZQA, exemplars, TKI, PowerPoint presentations, teaching resources and background articles.Link:http://tinyurl.com/9kuo52f
    At present this is delivered as a large Word document. It will be continuously updated so it would be wise to pull down the latest version whenever you want to use it. CensusAtSchool's website is currently being redesigned to put teacher needs in the new environment at the heart of what the site delivers. We aim to become a current, comprehensive, resource bank for the Teaching of Statistics in NZ. When the redesign process is complete, the Word file will become a set of categorised resources.
    To help us keep our achievement standards-centred resources and links up to date, if you come across something good that we have missed please email us:censusatschoolnz@gmail.com
    While on the subject of changes to standards, assessment and worries about them, we can also pass on the following:
    ...
    bootstrap/re-sampling confidence intervals are only relevant to standard A3.10: Use statistical methods to make a formal inference
    iNZight is available for Mac as well as Windows in user-friendly-installation form. It also works with Linux though the user will have to install R themselves (see the downloads pages ofhttp://www.stat.auckland.ac.nz/~wild/iNZight/
    )
    NZQA Moderators: There is now a July 2012 newsletter on the Mathematics and Statistics page on the NZQA website at http://www.nzqa.govt.nz/qualifications-standards/qualifications/ncea/subjects/mathematics/moderator-s-newsletter/july-2012/ It contains information on the COA docs, posing questions for 91035 and 91264 and also something on 91032.

    A.S 1.13 Investigate a situation involving elements of chance
    This invesitagtion (chainsaws) is a nice idea but does not meet the standard as it involves a simulation. Simulations are now at level 7 of the curriculum (NCEA Level 2). It could be adapted to meet the standard by removing the simulation and just investigate the throwing of six dice, in which case it becomes very similar to the webtask v B.
    When creating tasks for this standard we need to think of practical probabilities (eg the basketball task) or theoretical distributions (eg throwing dice, coins, picking playing cards, random number generators etc.
