Huntly’s Te Wharekura o Rakaumangamanga will be the test bed for a new project aimed at finding new ways to teach pangarau or mathematics in Maori medium setting.

University of Waikato researchers Ngarewa Hawera and Leeana Herewini have secured $130,000 for the two-year 'Maku ano e hanga, i toku nei whare ' project from the Teaching and Learning Research Initiative administered by the New Zealand Council for Educational Research - Rangahau Matauranga o Aotearoa.

Also up for a $200,000 grant are Nancy November and ‘Ema Wolfgramm-Foliaki from the University of Auckland, who want to look at the low enrolment and pass rates of Maori and Pasifika students in university history courses.

They will employ kaupapa Maori and Pasifika methodology to better understand the students’ characteristic ways of knowing and learning in the historical disciplines, and try to develop teaching methods to improve pass rates.
