Minister of Education Hekia Parata says Maori have a natural affinity with maths which she wants to see encouraged.
Hekia Parata says this being Math Week in schools it is an ideal time to reflect on what is a challenging area not just for Maori children but New Zealand children in general.
Hekia Parata says in more modern times for young people it is things like working out which is the best mobile phone and what will a new pair of gung ho shoes will cost.
She says maths is involved in everything and everybody can learn it.
