The New Zealand Mathematics and Statistics Curriculum is divided into 8 levels of learning. Below is a summary of the NZC levels and associated National Standards (for students aged 6 to 13) and NCEA levels (NZ national assessment) if applicable. There is a degree of flexibility within these guidelines for students to learn subject content earlier or later than the guidelines. New Zealand students typically start school at 5 years of age.

## Note

*The Department of Statistics, The University of Auckland, recommends AS3.10 Use Statistical Methods to make a Formal Inference, AS3.9 Investigate Bivariate Measurement Data, and AS3.13 Apply Probability Concepts in Solving Problems as a statistics core course for the approved subject Statistics or for a Mathematics course for students hoping to proceed to study Statistics at University.*
