### › About the New Zealand schooling system

The New Zealand Mathematics and Statistics Curriculum is divided into 8 levels of learning. Below is a summary of the NZC levels and associated Learning Progression Framework (for students aged 5 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.

NZ Curriculum |
Year at School |
Age (Approx) |
Learning Progression |
NCEA |

Level 1 | 1, 2 | 5-7 yrs | After 1 yr, After 2 yrs | |

Level 2 | 3, 4 | 7-9 yrs | After 3 yrs, After 4 yrs | |

Level 3 | 5, 6 | 9-11 yrs | After 5 yrs, After 6 yrs | |

Level 4 | 7, 8 | 11-13 yrs | After 7 yrs, After 8 yrs | |

Level 5 | 9, 10 | 13-15 yrs | ||

Level 6 | 11 | 15-16 yrs | Level 1 | |

Level 7 | 12 | 16-17 yrs | Level 2 | |

Level 8 | 13 | 17-18 yrs | Level 3 |

Learning Progression Frameworks

## Resources by Level

In relationship to the review of achievement standards (RAS) and reflecting that CensusAtSchool is a curriculum-based resource, we have reviewed the structure of the resources section for curriculum levels 6-8. With a view to the future, we are moving away from the resources being structured by achievement standard to being structured by statistics and probability big ideas. The structure will be consistent across levels 6-8 and reflect the big ideas of statistical investigations and probability.

*Investigate a given multivariate data set using the statistical enquiry cycle*(1.10) involves a comparison investigation, so would now be found under comparisons, as would*use statistical methods to make an inference*(2.9) and*use statistical methods to make a formal inference*(3.10).*Conduct an experiment to investigate a situation using statistical methods*(2.10) involves experiments so would be under experiments, as would*conduct an experiment to investigate a situation using experimental design principles*(3.11).

### NZC Levels 1-5

### NZC Level 6

### NZC Level 7

### NZC Level 8

*The University of Auckland’s Department of Statistics 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.*
