Statistics Learning Centre
Statistics Learning Centre provides support for New Zealand students and teachers of Statistics. It covers all NCEA statistics achievement standards and scholarship.
Our courses NZ Stats 1, 2, and 3 support all NCEA internal and external statistics standards. The courses include videos, step-by-step examples, quizzes, notes and cases designed to well support learning.
As a teacher StatsLC resources have been very useful to help students understand the key concepts when dealing with statistics. The students find the resources engaging and the site is easy to navigate around. Definitely beneficial for students studying for externals. Thank you StatsLC!

Two months – free access
In response to the lockdown we are offering all New Zealand teachers and their classes two-months of free access as a full-access free trial. The free trial applies to any New Zealand teacher and their students whether or not your school has a Site Licence.
Teachers are now $99 and students $5. Subscriptions provide full access for a calendar year. See the licence options for details.
Licence options are on the right. Details of the courses are above. Schools are encouraged to choose the option that best suits them.
As a small company we are flexible. Email Dr Nic or phone 027 698 7392 to discuss your school's needs.
Individual student accounts are available through the Creative Maths Shop.
Site licenses offer access to students and teachers at one school for a single price.
For 2020 we are offering a fantastic new price. The cost is $5 per student account for Level 2 or 3 and includes a free teacher account for every 20 student accounts. Level 1 student accounts are $1 each. Once a school has 8 teacher accounts, any subsequent teacher accounts are free.
All teachers have access to the teacher materials. They may assign activities to students for homework or in class, or work through the material as a class. Resources available include videos, databases, quizzes, step-by-step, notes, writing guides and worksheets, including all scholarship materials. Teachers may print out and distribute notes, writing guides and worksheets. Teachers can monitor their student's progress on the site. Teachers also have access to the forums and teaching help.
Students have individual access to the materials at home and at school, including scholarship materials. They can watch the videos, access databases and work through quizzes and step-by-steps individually. Students also have direct access to the notes and writing guides. Students can track their own progress and earn badges.
This option for the site licence allows your students to watch StatsLC videos through your LMS. This avoids the need for students to have StatsLC accounts.
The Video Site Licence requires your school to embed the videos in your Learning Management System or a secure website.
Pricing for the video licence is on the same basis as a site licence and depends on the number of students you expect to be using the videos.
Please contact Dr Nic for more information.
Teachers are signed up for the year. Some students may also be signed up through the school or individually.
For 2020 we are offering the fantastic new price of $99 for each teacher, which comes with up to 20 free student accounts. Once a school has 8 teacher accounts, at a cost of $792, all subsequent teacher accounts are free. Additional student accounts cost $5 each for level 2 or 3 students and $1 each level 1 students.
Teacher accounts have access to the teacher materials, including all scholarship materials. They can show the videos or work through the quizzes or step-by-step activities as a class. Teachers may also print out and distribute notes, writing guides and worksheets to their students. They have access to the forums and teaching help.
Teachers and classes may request two months free-trial access. Free-trials for classes can run at any time during Terms 1 to 3. You can choose the timing to best match your teaching. Teacher free-trials can run at any time. A free-trial provides full access to Statistics Learning Centre materials, but for a limited time.
Teachers can simply send us an email requesting free-trial access providing the names and email addresses of teachers needing free trial accounts. Email Shane via the StatsLC Help-desk help@CreativeMaths.net.
The details needed for a class for free-trial access are in the Enrolling Classes section below.
Over the summer break we offer free access to teachers to review our materials and plan for the next year. Email Shane help@CreativeMaths.net to ask for summer access.
