Achievement objective NA6-7

In a range of meaningful contexts, students will be engaged in thinking mathematically and statistically. They will solve problems and model situations that require them to:

  • relate graphs, tables, and equations to linear, quadratic, and simple exponential relationships found in number and spatial patterns.


  • Demonstrates understanding of relationships, including linear, quadratic (where neither a nor c are equal to 1), and simple exponential relationships (y=a^f(x) , where f(x) is a linear function) and a is an integer.
  • Makes connections between representations such as number patterns, spatial patterns, tables, equations, and graphs.
  • Identifies and uses key features including gradient, intercepts, vertex, and symmetry.
  • Makes links with solving equations NA6-5 and coordinate geometry GM6-7.
  • See key mathematical ideas on NZmaths.
