Pasifika Maths

Talofa lava!

This year, students from Lumana’i Manuia have made pleasing progress in Maths. They have been learning a new approach in Maths called Pasifika Maths. In this approach, Pasifika contexts are used. The problems are related to the students’ real life experiences. They work collaboratively in groups to solve a problem. They then share their strategies with others. Students learn to challenge each other and justify their reasons. Here are some photos of the students in action.
