Our Top Links
These are what we consider our most useful links. They support the direction of the Mathematics Department at Nayland College and include our most commonly used tools.
- YouCubed - The Stanford Project run by Dr Jo Boaler
- Sunshine College - Yvonne Reilly and the team at Sunshine College are accomplishing wonderful things
- Desmos - the online graphics calculator
- NZ Grapher by Jake Wills - our primary online graphing tool
- Kahoot - online quizzes
- Photomath - take a picture and solve a problem
These are links that students can use without much (if any) teacher support.
Problem of the Week/Month
These are a collection of problems that are published about every week. Some have nice simple solutions, others are much more involved. We always encourage teachers to have a go at the problems first before using in class.
These links are more useful for teachers, although students may use some of them directly as well.

About These Links
It is surprisingly difficult to easily classify links. We've trimmed down the original list that Max had curated over the years.
Our process for adding to our list of links is possibly a bit blunt. We look for non-commercial links to quality mathematics education content to support what we do. We regularly review our links and trim as needed.
The content of all external websites is the work of those groups/individuals and does not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of Nayland College.
