Mathematics for Maori--An Investigative Approach?
Hawera, Ngarewa; Taylor, Merilyn
Teachers and Curriculum, v9 n43-48 2006
Carrying out mathematics investigations in primary classrooms has become an expectation in New Zealand classrooms especially since the introduction of Mathematics in the New Zealand Curriculum (Ministry of Education, 1992). This has meant increased emphasis on investigations as a way of learning mathematics. This research reports on the impact of this approach for Maori preservice teachers and possible implications for Maori children learning mathematics.
