New Zealand Curriculum
Mathematics and statistics curriculum achievement objectivesOur apps can help to cover most objectives in the 'Number and algebra' area from Levels 1 to 5. The Teaching Graphs app can help cover the 'Statistics' area from Levels 1 to 6. More information: https://nzcurriculum.tki.org.nz/ 


Level 1 


Number and algebra  
Number strategies  
Use a range of counting, grouping, and equalsharing strategies with whole numbers and fractions.  
Number knowledge  
Know the forward and backward counting sequences of whole numbers to 100.  
Know groupings with five, within ten, and with ten.  
Equations and expressions  
Communicate and explain counting, grouping, and equalsharing strategies, using words, numbers, and pictures.  
Patterns and relationships  
Generalise that the next counting number gives the result of adding one object to a set and that counting the number of objects in a set tells how many.  
Create and continue sequential patterns.  
Statistics  
Statistical investigation  
Conduct investigations using the statistical enquiry cycle:
 posing and answering questions  gathering, sorting and counting, and displaying category data  discussing the results.  
Statistical literacy  
Interpret statements made by others from statistical investigations and probability activities. 
Level 2 


Number and algebra  
Number strategies  
Use simple additive strategies with whole numbers and fractions.  
Number knowledge  
Know forward and backward counting sequences with whole numbers to at least 1000.  
Know the basic addition and subtraction facts.  
Know how many ones, tens, and hundreds are in whole numbers to at least 1000.  
Know simple fractions in everyday use.  
Equations and expressions  
Communicate and interpret simple additive strategies, using words, diagrams (pictures), and symbols.  
Patterns and relationships  
Generalise that whole numbers can be partitioned in many ways.  
Find rules for the next member in a sequential pattern.  
Statistics  
Statistical investigation  
Conduct investigations using the statistical enquiry cycle:
 posing and answering questions  gathering, sorting, and displaying category and wholenumber data  communicating findings based on the data.  
Statistical literacy  
Compare statements with the features of simple data displays from statistical investigations or probability activities undertaken by others. 
Level 3 


Number and algebra  
Number strategies  
Use a range of additive and simple multiplicative strategies with whole numbers, fractions, decimals, and percentages.  
Number knowledge  
Know basic multiplication and division facts.  
Know counting sequences for whole numbers.  
Know how many tenths, tens, hundreds, and thousands are in whole numbers.  
Know fractions and percentages in everyday use.  
Equations and expressions  
Record and interpret additive and simple multiplicative strategies, using, words, diagrams, and symbols, with an understanding of equality.  
Patterns and relationships  
Generalise the properties of addition and subtraction with whole numbers.  
Statistics  
Statistical investigation  
Conduct investigations using the statistical enquiry cycle:
 gathering, sorting, and displaying multivariate category and wholenumber data and simple timeseries data to answer questions  identifying patterns and trends in context, within and between data sets  communicating findings, using data displays.  
Statistical literacy  
Evaluate the effectiveness of different displays in representing the findings of a statistical investigation or probability activity undertaken by others. 
Level 4 


Number and algebra  
Number strategies and knowledge  
Use a range of multiplicative strategies when operating on whole numbers.  
Understand addition and subtraction of fractions, decimals, and integers.  
Find fractions, decimals, and percentages of amounts expressed as whole numbers, simple fractions, and decimals.  
Apply simple linear proportions, including ordering fractions.  
Equations and expressions  
Form and solve simple linear equations.  
Patterns and relationships  
Generalise properties of multiplication and division with whole numbers.  
Use graphs, tables, and rules to describe linear relationships found in number and spatial patterns.  
Statistics  
Statistical investigation  
Plan and conduct investigations using the statistical enquiry cycle:
 determining appropriate variables and data collection methods  gathering, sorting, and displaying multivariate category, measurement, and timeseries data to detect patterns, variations, relationships, and trends  comparing distributions visually  communicating findings, using appropriate displays.  
Statistical literacy  
Evaluate statements made by others about the findings of statistical investigations and probability activities. 
Level 5 


Number and algebra  
Number strategies and knowledge  
Use prime numbers, common factors and multiples, and powers (including square roots).  
Understand operations on fractions, decimals, percentages, and integers.  
Patterns and relationships  
Relate tables, graphs, and equations to linear and simple quadratic relationships found in number and spatial patterns.  
Statistics  
Statistical investigation  
Plan and conduct surveys and experiments using the statistical enquiry cycle:
 determining appropriate variables and measures  considering sources of variation  gathering and cleaning data  using multiple displays, and recategorising data to find patterns, variations, relationships, and trends in multivariate data sets  comparing sample distributions visually, using measures of centre, spread, and proportion  
Statistical literacy  
Evaluate statistical investigations or probability activities undertaken by others, including data collection methods, choice of measures, and validity of findings. 
Level 6 


Number and algebra  
Patterns and relationships  
Relate graphs, tables, and equations to linear, quadratic, and simple exponential relationships found in number and spatial patterns.  
Relate rate of change to the gradient of a graph.  
Statistics  
Statistical investigation  
Plan and conduct investigations using the statistical enquiry cycle:
 justifying the variables and measures used  managing sources of variation, including through the use of random sampling  identifying and communicating features in context (trends, relationships between variables, and differences within and between distributions), using multiple displays  making informal inferences about populations from sample data  justifying findings, using displays and measures.  
Statistical literacy  
Evaluate statistical reports in the media by relating the displays, statistics, processes, and probabilities used to the claims made.
