For Teachers* Be familiar with the Achievement Standard AS3.14 #91586 (link to NZQA) * Check the latest information on the NZQA clarifications page as things change all the time, and the exemplars in NZQA may be out of date (as they are in this standard) Clarifications from NZQA Specifications Class notes * Look over the NZQA Exemplars on AS3.14 Distributions Note: these exemplars may not reflect the latest information or the end of year exam... but we can only hope. Link to NZQA Sample Exam Paper  Schedule Annotated Exemplars: Excellence  Merit  Achieve * Material available on the mathstatsfacilitators web site AS 3.14 page * AS3.14 page at CENSUS at schools site. * Formula Sheet (link to NZQA) * Check the latest comments on the NZmaths forum (login required) * Past Examination Papers: (link to NZQA) 2013 (& schedule) * Any further ideas / suggestions / resources/ comments / errors.
